Things are about to get ugly around here.

We only have two Thin Mint cookies left.

Dennis and I have very strict rules about the consumption of Girl Scout cookies. There is no other girl scout cookie I want besides Thin Mints. He loves those friggin' chocolate/caramel/coconut ones - I can't remember the name.

Anyway, I'm not so crazy about coconut on cookies, or anything for that matter.

So, when one if his students tried to sell him cookies, he bought himself a box of the coconut whatevers, and he got me a box of Thin Mints.

The rule is this: Dennis may NOT under ANY circumstances eat ANY of my Thin Mints.

My rationale? It's just not fair. I don't like his cookies, so I'm not going to eat any of them. Therefore, I want each and every one of my Thin Mints all for myself. Not too much to ask, right?

Well, he likes to mess with me and try to steal my cookies, so I had to come up with a plan. I discovered that if I put the box of cookies under the cushion of the papasan chair in our room, he would never find them. We rarely sit in the chair these days, so there was no risk of squishing the cookies.

Wouldn't ya know... a couple days ago I'm on the phone, and Kaylee starts fussing. We all happen to be in our room, so Dennis gets ready to pop a squat in the papasan chair and try to calm Kaylee down.

This results in me fanatically flailing my arms in an attempt to get him to NOT sit on the cushion and crush the cookies that were hidden. Thank heavens I saved the cookies, but I lost my hiding place, and I've been moving them to new hiding places at random times to try and throw him off my trail.

I think I've been successful in ensuring that every last cookie is consumed by ME and ONLY ME.

However, we now have a problem. There are only 2 left. And I want to eat them both. Right now. But then I won't have any more. Oh, what ever will I do...

I love your theory on why he can't have any. Makes perfect sense to me.

Kristen said...

Crap! Is it GS cookie season?
The PERFECT hiding place...a tampon box. What guy would go in there?

Wendy said...

I just broke into our stash of Thin Mints that was buried in my freezer, patiently awaiting the day when I could eat dairy again. Thank you Miss Sera, for reminding me of my wonderful treasure!

Are we secretly clones? Thin mints are my favorites and Matt loves the samoas. And he bought some from a student this year. I have not had to go to such extremes this year to save my thin mints however, since eating gluten makes Matt sick.

Jenners said...

Samoas ... those are the ones he likes too. I like 'em but no one else does so I don't have to share.

And I'm sorry girl -- but you get like 40 Thin Mints and he only gets like 12 Samoas so it ain't fair. However, I do fully support keeping all treats to yourself. I suggest you hide them in your tummy.

After I blogged about my Girl Scout cookie experience, I decided to do a blog search on Google to find other bloggers who were writing about GS cookies. I am addicted to Thin Mints! But I love Samoas too. It's best that you don't invite me to your house. :-) But if you go out to your local grocery store right now, you will find some girls selling cookies --- and Moms who can't wait to get out of there. I buy 20 boxes every year!

Anonymous said...

Is there a rule that says you can only have one box a year? You could buy another box now. Go do it!

Becky said...

That rule sounds fair to me.
I think I must be missing out on something awesome as we don't get these cookies here and just lately I have read so many posts about these... And I love anything with mint and chocolate in it!

Love thin mints. They didn't last 3 minutes in our house.
