My niece, the wheeler-dealer  
When we went out to lunch this Saturday past, my sister-in-law let us know that my six-year old niece is selling girl scout cookies. "Great!" Don said. "Give a call, and we'll tell you what we want." Not that we need cookies. Heavens above know I do not. It is about supporting family. So, tonight I got a call from said sister-in-law. She then handed the phone over to my niece.

"Hey, Aunt Kelly. Do you still want the Lemon Coolers?"

"You bet!" I told her. "What else are you selling?" She ran down the list, explained the different cookies to me, and I chose two other types. "So, that's three, then."

There was a pause. I could almost hear the wheels of Capitalism turning. "Three of each?" she said, all six-year old sweetness.

"Um, no, kiddo. That's three total."

She giggled. "Okay!"

ooch!

That's kind of cute.

My sister is a girlscout, there are going to be a lot of cookies here in not so long, so evil and yet so yummy.

What kinds of cookies do they sell there? This curious west coast girl scout wants to know.

I'm guessing Lemon Coolers are like Lemon Pastry Creams.
