Did Girl Scout Cookies Get Smaller or Have I Gotten Larger?
Girl Scout cookies are not supposed to be in my food intake at all, but last week I stepped out of the grocery store and one of my friends' daughters was standing there in her adorable little uniform, selling these tiny boxes of cookies. She could be the poster child for Girl Scouts...she has the most adorable smile and natural good looks and the next thing I knew, I had bought many boxes of cookies. She's polite, too, saying thank you and offering to put my cookies in my grocery bag. It's really not my fault; they should have less attractive and not-so-sweet girls selling the goods if I am going to be able to resist!
Of course, now I don't want to waste food, that would be wrong. So, I ration them to myself. I can have three (don't give me shit...I told you they are tiny!) with my morning coffee and one after my lunch salad.
As I take teeny-tiny bites so the cookies last longer, I begin to feel like this cat:
What if the cookies haven't change at all in size and it's just that I have gotten larger? The horror. I run to that dreaded piece of nasty torture (the bathroom scale) and weigh myself. Arghh! Now I confused and more so than usual. Help a poor, empty nest woman out. Have the cookies shrunk or have I just gotten bigger? Maybe it's both, but either way, this is no way to start my Friday morning out.
