Thin mints are like…

CRACK!!!

Every year I purchase one box of thin mints.    And the day came last week where I was informed that my cookies had arrived.  I gathered my money together and very happily made the exchange to receive the brilliant girl scout green colored box.  Happily I walked back to my desk and placed them on a table to share with co-workers as it is my hope to only eat a few.  In my mind a few is equivalent to just 4 cookies.  Yep, that seems reasonable.  I proceeded to open the box and pulled out the first sleeve of cookies in my hand.  There was that short moment of knowing that once I open the sleeve, there’s no going back.  I rip open the sleeve and took in that wonderful thin mint aroma.  Grab 4 cookies and then grabbed some more.  Within less than 10 minutes a sleeve is devoured.  And at this point, you can no longer look back.  The damage has been done and you can only take one step at a time to go burn off the calories.
