One-Liner Wednesday – Decisions

“It’s like whether or not to buy Girl Scout Cookies.”

Let’s face it, some decisions just aren’t that hard to make. I mean, Thin Mints are still only $4.00 a box. I like mine frozen and I tend to eat four, maybe six at a time with a glass of cold milk.

If you’re going to tell me how bad this annual habit of mine is, I’d like to point out that Thin Mints are Trans Fat free. In addition, there are no calories in Girl Scout Cookies because buying them is a charitable contribution, so the IRS gets the calories.

This is part of Linda G. Hill’s One-Liner Wednesday series. I’ll be trapped in a meeting by the time Linda wakes up, so that link is to her blog but not to the #1linerWeds post. I’ll update this as soon as I escape our meeting is over. Here’s the OLW link.


    1. It’s funny that you say that Janet. My wife makes a white chocolate bark during the holidays and she normally lets it set up on our porch. This year, it was so warm, she had to make room in the fridge.


  1. I was never a Girl Scout (thank God!), but I loved the GS cookies from the early ’90s. They were either chocolate or vanilla, and they were to DIE for. Then they changed the recipe and so ended my love affair with these annual delights. And I’m so sorry, but I detest thin mints, or any mint/chocolate blending, really. Blech. O_o Which is strange though, considering I was wild about Andes Crème de Menthe — a layer of mint between two slabs of chocolate, all wrapped up in a pretty metallic green foil wrapper — when I was a kid. Now just the thought of one of those things makes me want to gag! :P

    1. Ha ! I have a bowl of those Andes mints sitting on my bookshelf at work for people to snack on. I like the Thin Mints because they aren’t all that minty. Oh well, to each his/her own. And, let’s face it, you and me on the opposite sides of a brand/flavor battle isn’t exactly shocking :)

      Also, for having never been a scout, you seem pretty capable :)

  2. I love the -no calories because it is for a good cause part! I think I may have the girls try that line out this cookie season. :) But it is amazing that so many people help the girls out every year! They appreciate every box you buy!
