It’s girl scout cookie season, so naturally my thoughts turn to Thin Mints
And here is a thing I wonder: what counts as “one sitting”?
So, let’s say that I opened a sleeve of Thin Mints. And then I ate some, and they were delicious.
And then I got up and grilled some chicken and sliced it up and washed the grill pan and then sautéed it a little bit in another skillet until it was completely cooked and then put it in a box and then loaded the dishwasher and fiddled a bit with some more prep for my work week lunch salads.
And then I came back to my bed and the sleeve was still there, and I ate one; still delicious. And then I checked tumblr and knit the cable crossover row for this blanket I’m working on and listened to the President talk about the oil industry and muted it before the Republicans could come on because it’s Kay Bailey and she’s been making me insane for 20 years and NO. I stress ate another thin mint and then realized that E! was starting its Oscar pre show at 1:30 and holy shit, and somehow the sleeve was over half gone.
This will go on like this for a while. The sleeve will never make it back into the box, but I will be up and down and all over the place and grazing on this thing until this sleeve is empty. Because this is what we do. What would be the point of putting away the sleeve half-eaten? It’s better for everybody for me to just finish the damn thing, right?
Is that officially “one sitting”? This is an important question. For my dignity and stuff.
