Cookie Crisis Averted!

Every year I order Girl Scout Cookies from my neighbor and then I find out that Cute W’s ordered from coworkers’ kids, and next thing you know we have a lot of cookies. I know, I know: what’s the problem? Well, I just try to limit the number of completely irresistible items in my house. That’s why Nutella, Breyer’s Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream, and the Bucket o’ Margarita must go through a stringent permitting process before crossing the threshold.

This year I thought I was being smart: I only ordered two boxes from my friendly neighborhood Girl Scout. This way, I reasoned, we wouldn’t be buried in cookies when all of those extra boxes arrived from work. Alas, the coworkers’ kids have moved on to other activities, and only Thin Mint and Samoa crumbs remain. Oh, the regret, the despair!

Luckily, there are Girl Scout Cookies selling at both Colonie Center and Crossgates Mall. Even cooler: there’s a special website: just plug in your zip code and they’ll hook you up with the nearest cookie location. God bless America!
