It’s that time of year again. Those little girls in their green sashes, trying to sell me millions of boxes of cookies, are everywhere. I say millions of boxes, by the way, because there are oh I don’t know, six Samoas in every box?
It seems that way every time I eagerly rip open a box. My childish grin gradually transforms into a grumpy scowl as I realize I ate all the cookies in under 10 minutes.
