Post Traumatic Cookie Disorder


There’s more of me now
than at the start of the season.
Girl Scout cookies
are the primary reason.

This tasty juncture
has finally ended.
By the final box,
my belt is extended.

    1. Thanks, Tamera! My youngest is a GS and we've had stock on hand for over a month...thank goodness the last boxes have been sold. = )

  4. Awesome Bridget! I'm going to share this with my GS troop--I think there are quite a few sufferers among us.

    1. Yay, thank you, Michelle! My little GS didn't suffer the same effects my husband and I did from this selling season. = )

  5. Wonder if the Girl Scouts would love this! I have one box left, but must admit I gave some to my family, too! You hit it right. When someone brings a box to school, it's gone by lunch!

  6. Love the word play here. :) Haven't tasted any Scouts' biscuits yet, but I'm sure they're great. :)

    1. Thanks, Myra! A GS cookie has a unique taste of its own...and a unique addictive quality. = )

  7. HA! I was just feeling proud of myself for making my one box last long enough to leave no effects on the bathroom scale! Good thing I only bought ONE!

    1. Yay for you, Mary Lee. Unfortunately having a young GS in the house we had an inventory on hand...that sometimes went from hand to mouth. = )

  8. This is so funny! I have stuffed my 4 boxes of Thin Mints into my freezer to wait for Easter morning. This is taking a lot of will power!

    1. Thanks, Margaret! Good for you...4 boxes of Thin Mints in or out of the freezer would not make it St. Patrick's day, let alone Easter, around here. Enjoy when the time comes. = )
