You know, I’m normally very excited about girl scout cookie season. I like them so very, very much. But there’s something that’s always bothered me about girl scout cookies. Why can’t you just buy them in a super market? Why are they only available once a year through some weird organization? It’d be like if they only sold Coca Cola in July and you could only buy it from the Knights of Columbus. Girl scout cookies are delicious. They come in thin mint and samoas and also… other flavors. How come I have to know a child in a beret in order to get them? Just sell me the cookies, you know what I mean? I have American money. Just put them in a store and I’ll buy them.
And have some pride in yourself girl scout cookies! You are much more than just the once a year type of thing. You are not candy canes, and you are certainly not the McRib. We don’t need to you leave town for most of the year. You are delicious cookies. I mean Seth, have you had thin mints before? They’re fantastic. Put them in the freezer next time, unless you don’t like having your mind blown. And do the people who actually make the thin mints realize that they have a best seller on their hands? How long is this exclusive sales contract going to last where they only sell the cookies through a weird child army in table cloth dresses. You know, according to the girl scouts’s website, you cannot buy girl scout cookies online. Do you know what you can buy online? Everything. You can buy everything online.
So in conclusion, girl scouts I don’t mean to get on your case but you should take it as a bad sign that in your entire 93 year history no one has copied your business model. No one has said, “You know how we should sell our product? A bunch of little girls in sashes and then everyone can buy them from them as long as they work in the same office as one of their moms”.
John Mulaney’s Weekend Update rant on Girl Scout cookies.
Tonight was a surprise treat having dinner with Ava and Jordans moms at Koi.
It was nice to be treated and try some yummy food. I’m not the biggest japanese fan so I let the moms doing the choosing and I will say I did like a majority of the stuff we got! I would definitely recommend!
It was also nice to talk to them “out of the office”. They are beyond what anyone would ask for when working with a mom and I am so lucky to have them in my lives.
Now off to bed so I can go back there in the morning.
Remember when you were little and time seemed to creep by so slowly. Summer couldn’t come fast enough and it seemed to last a lifetime. Its been said a million times by a million other people but its different once you start experiencing the quickness of time. Days fly by and years go faster than a blink.
I looked at Ava today and she looked so grown up. I cannot believe I have known her since she was 8 months old and barely able to stand and now we have little conversations about life. I also cannot believe in a little over a month she and Chloe will move out of the city and I will not be able to see them everyday anymore. Their family has been my family out here and brought me into such wonderful things. I will be forever grateful. Luckily they will be just a short train ride away.
Its so beautiful out today! A little chilly for my taste but I will live. Getting some stuff done today including bringing some clothes to goodwill and possibly getting a new shower curtain liner. My life in New York City is exciting like that.
Later though I get to hang out with my beloved Caroline which is exciting! We havent seen each other all week (besides me spotting her walking pad out my window yesterday) so it will be nice to catch up.
Ok getting moving. Getting out of my luxuriously comfy bed and off the computer!
