This is my family’s 5th year selling Girl Scout cookies, or as I like to call it “moving product”. Last year, I wrote a post about how Girl Scout cookies should probably be renamed “Suburban Kryptonite”. I imagine that selling them is a lot like selling drugs as there is no other product quite so addictive. I even re-named Samoas “My own personal brand of heroin” because I am unable to resist them.
Now, you should know up front that I’ve never actually been a drug dealer. I have watched a lot of TV and movies, however. And I came to the conclusion that selling girl scout cookies often feels lot like dealing girl scout cookies.
Example: last year, I actually got a text message from a friend of mine that said: “I need some thin mints. You holding?” And you know I was. I had a case of thin mints in the trunk of my car. And I got that cash.
Here are ten reasons why cop shows have me convinced that I’m actually dealing Girl Scout cookies:
