Like that nightmare of a blind date that your former best friend set you up on, diets can be a bore. Sure, both sounded great at first, but then reality set in.
We just knew that you needed a reason to be decadent and drop the New Year’s diet plan, so is your get-out-of-jail opportunity — Girl Scout Cookie Time!
On Friday, January 10, the cookies will be rolling in your direction. The Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas will “sell, deliver and collect money” with cookies.
Yes, it is “an integral part of the Girls Scouts’ Business and Economic Literacy initiative for girls in grades K-12,” but let’s be honest. Like as honest as your scales are when you step on them — nobody needs to know but you why you bought a case of cookies. It’s the cookie factor of life. Yummy, hit-the right-taste bud, OMG delish factor that hits at killer times during the day.
Here’s the game plan:
- Friday, January 10 — Door-to-door sales begin
- Friday, January 17 — Booth sales begin
Ah, but there’s a new cookie player this year — Mary Kay! Adorable pink Mary Kay Entrepreneur patches will be earned by Girl Scout troops who have achieved “a goal of at least 50 packages during the 2014 Cookie Program.”
It seems only right since Mary Kay believed — “You should pretend everyone that you encounter has a sign around their neck that says, ‘Make me feel important.’ How do you think you customers want to be treated?’”
Ah, do you heard the sound of Samoas going and people feeling important? Then the Girl Scouts have just made another sale.
