Girl Scout for a Day

So this weekend was the Girl Scout cookie sale kickoff. Unfortunately, it coincided with ninth-grade assessment, a weeks-long intense project child number one had to complete with a group of other students. They're doing Should Gay Marriage Be Legalized?

Anyway, in order to relieve some of the stress, my Moppit-giving friend Dana, and I, decided to take control of our daughters's cookie booth and let them finish their project. Needless to say, the sight of two old broads selling Girl Scout cookies outside the local Blockbuster attracted some attention.

Everyone wanted to know where the girls were. Here are some of our answers:

1) They're in the bathroom from eating too many cookies.
2) We never should've taken out our braids.
3) We're the Bad Girl Scouts.
4) We're the Girl Scouts Nextdoor.

and my personal favorite:

5) We are the girl scouts. We got left back.

I guess people enjoyed the sideshow. We beat out the younger, morning crew by two boxes. And when one teenaged guy came over and I apologized that I wasn't a pretty fifteen year-old he said, "That's okay. You'll do."

Got any other lines for us in case we have to do this again?
