Having just paid four dollars for a nine oz. box of cookies, I would appreciate a post card a month in advance of the local cookie drive in order to be out of town or hide somewhere.

( it was hopeless. I was cornered by three of them with toy wagon and a mom riding shotgun. )

       The lemon ones have some sort of heroin in them or something. They are as addicting as hell. Whoa! Be warned.

       I think we pay more than $4.00 per box. I am diabetic, but I like the shortbread cookies. What is worse is that our Boy Scouts sell $10 bags of popcorn! Just avoid eye contact!

       Thin mints must be frozen to be any good.

       I always tell them that I'm on cookie restriction, but I'll buy a box that they can send to the troops overseas, poor devils.

       I've always found that a cheery "fuck off" works well at getting one out of these awkward situations.
