Spring is here! The redbuds are budulating, the pollen tassels are ... tasseling. I went to the store today and noticed they were selling Girl Scout cookies outside, so I got some. I got thin mints, samoas, and a shortbread. I was never a girl scout, of course (though now I understand they allow transgender girls in, so that's cool). My older sister was one, though, so we always had cookies of each type every year. One year, when I was 6 or 7, we volunteered our carport to be the distribution point for the local troop. The carport was filled with hundreds of boxes, each packed with dozens of color-coded cookie boxes. Rainbow stacks of different colored boxes. Cookies everywhere! Many a samoa and peanut butter patty fell that year.
