We participated in an American tradition for the first time on Sunday: we bought Girl Scout Cookies.
This was a fundraising activity we were only aware of through TV programmes and movies (mainly ‘Monster House’) but we had heard the legends that these were the best cookies in the universe. Those Girl Scouts know how to market themselves, that’s for sure. So when two little girls who live at the other end of our street popped by proffering cookies we had to say yes. We are always happy to contribute to good causes anyway but we were also eager to try these baked goods of legend. We bought caramel and peanut butter varieties on the spot and ordered another batch of peanut butter and thin mints.
So far the boys have only sampled the peanut butter cookies but they met with their seal of approval.
