24 days, 8 hours.
The anticipation grows in my household. Money is being set aside. Waiting for Santa is child’s play. Waiting for the Girl Scouts to start their yearly cookie sale is for adults.
The Somoas are coming!!!! That wonderful time of year when the most delicious of cookies makes it’s appearance. A crisp shortbread base topped with caramel mixed with toasted coconut & drizzled with chocolate.
Oh, yummm. Crunchy buttery shortbread & gooey caramel with just the perfect touch of chocolate. Mmm-mmm.
Upon seeing the first Girl Scout, cookies in hand, all generosity & goodwill left from Christmas-tide vanishes.
“I bought Somoas.”
“Did you get me any?”
“Yes, a box–I didn’t have enough to buy any more.”
“You ate half of my box.”
“Yeah, well, I was hungry. Some is better than none.”
I have tried buying extra boxes& freezing them in the interest of weight maintenance. They taste just as good frozen. Three boxes gone within a work-week. This year I am throwing in the towel. I am just going to buy as many boxes as possible & enjoy my unhealthy consumerist enjoyment of sugar.
After all, it’s only once a year. 24 days, 8 hours, 15 minutes, 6 seconds (more or less) until Somoas are in the house!
