Believe it or not, but it was only until the other day when I had my first box of girl scout cookies. I don't know why the wait was so long, I guess maybe it was just the fact that you can't just go anywhere and get them. We saw a make-shift stand outside a home improvement place on a Sunday afternoon and I figured I'd give them some support. My wife Daisy went for the Thin Mints (I hate mint, so there was no point in trying) and I wanted the Shortbread. While the Boy Scouts are a similar organization, they are technically separate but I often see them doing the same thing. Except they have popcorn, and it's not nearly as popular from what I hear.
