In 2014, I had written (see SAVANNAH FROWNS below) that I wanted to support Girl Scouts but thought that $4 per box was exorbitant.  

Yesterday, I stopped where they were being sold and planned to buy two boxes.  I commented that there were two new ones.  I noticed that one of the new cookies was gluten-free and I thought I would get one for a friend who follows a gluten-free diet.

I handed the girl $12.00.  She said, "That will be $13.'  I said, "Four plus four plus four equals twelve, doesn't it?"

She said, "The new ones are $5.00"  I screaked, "FIVE dollars?  I don't like him THAT much." (That's not true, John, but I would never miss an opportunity for a good comeback!)

FIVE DOLLARS?  But, I am making LEMON LUSH today.

               SAVANNAH FROWNS

I sincerely want to support the Girl Scouts because of the right-wing zealots attacking them, BUT:

A Girl Scout Troop was set up outside Kroger and I chose three different boxes of cookies which I thought that Gerald, Les, and I would enjoy. The Scout, her mother, and I chatted amiably and I told them that I had recipes using Girl Scout cookies. The Scout asked about the recipes and I told her that my favorite recipe called for the lemon cookies to make a crust and then add cream cheese, lemon pudding, milk, and whipped cream for a delicious dessert. The girl was very cute and said, "Will you bring me some? I'll be here awhile!" I said, "I think I should bring you hot chocolate as it's rather cold."

I handed the Scout's mother a $10 bill and she said, "That will be $12.00."

I gasped and said, "I'm sorry, but I'm just going to buy one box!"

$4.00 for 6 ounces of "Savannah Smiles", which is approximately 25 little cookies, is ridiculous.

Les said, "They should be called SAVANNAH FROWNS"
