Okay, maybe that title should go to the day the cashier handed me $30 in cash by accident (He mistakenly thought I had asked for cash back from my bank card, but I hadn’t. I didn’t keep it though, because he’s the quickest cashier at my Ralphs, and I didn’t want his drawer to come up $30 short). But today, as I walked into the store, I was accosted by little uniformed girls with cute handmade signs urging me to buy GIRL SCOUT COOKIES. Seriously, they blocked my way until I promised to buy some. On the way out, I bought a box of samoas and was surprised to find they were only $4. I was a Girl Scout for a while, like, um… 20 years ago, and I swear they cost $3.50 back then. So $4 is quite the Girl Scout bargain. It’s Friday night, and I have a bottle of wine and a box of samoas. Woohoo!
UPDATE: For those of you on a cookie-quest, I got mine at a table in front of the Ralphs at Ventura and Vineland in Studio City. I just did a search to see if I could find any info about other cookie locations and found this article that says the girls have had a tough time this year because of all the rain, but they’re hoping to make up for it this weekend:
On March 12, the Girl Scouts will be out full force to celebrate the 93rd anniversary of Girl Scouting. Each Scout is aiming to sell 93 boxes of cookies.
