It’s that time of the year again!
I was ambushed by the sweetest little girl at school. She smiles at me often, and sometimes she even gives me a small hug. So sweet.
Is it all because I am such a good teacher? That I touch the lives of the future, and she wants to show her appreciation? Is it because I am helping to shape her into a good citizen and future productive member of society?
Nope, I think in a way she was preparing me for the day she would corner me with her catalog-her Girl Scout cookie catalog.
This year, I ordered my usual-the Do-Si-Dos. Yum. I would share a pic, but they didn’t make them home. And, I didn’t eat them all.
I shared two.
I also tried the new Savannah Smiles lemon cookies. I love the lemon cookies that the GS had a few years ago, but my girl didn’t have those on her order form.
So, I tried the new ones.
These cookies, named after the hometown of the founder of the Girl Scouts, are very dry, like a wedding cookie almost. The lemon taste isn’t very strong, and the crunch almost hurt my teeth. I liked the lemon cream cookies from the past better. Plus, I really didn’t get the fact that they are shaped like a smile. I just thought they were half moons.
I know, slow.
Still, I was a girl scout once-many, many years ago. I like to help a sister out by ordering these cookies, even if I only liked the new cookie and ended up actually sharing most of them. Next year, I look forward to my sweet student and her catalog paying me a visit.
You go, girl.
