Let’s stay on yesterday’s snack seem. I think life is great because of the occasional binge on Thin Mints – specially when you stick them in the freezer! Hmmmmm, yummy goodness! This is the time of year where I am starting to see Girl Scouts selling their cookies around town and it reminded me of a little girl I knew that once did the same thing. Those were good times, I did not even have to leave the house the order my cookies and if I ordered and extraordinary amount, I could rationalize it by telling myself I was just trying to help my daughter make her sales. I think that my pancreas is glad that you have moved on to other endeavors.
Have a good weekend Kiddo.
