I want to thank Alice Gaveronski from the Girl Guides for dropping off some of those delicious Girl Guide cookies to the station the other day. Delicious. Well, at least half delicious. I’m not a fan of anything vanilla, so it’s the chocolate side for me and the vanilla side of the cookie box for anyone else who wants to much on one or two.
This won’t be the only half box of cookies I chow down on this year. We have a couple that lives down the street from us who daughter belongs to the Girl Guides. They make a trip to the front door of the Lewis household every year, and every year I buy a box or two from her.
Buying one box or two totally depends on how much money I have on me at the time when they ring my doorbell. I don’t carry any money on me…ever. However, I do have a secret stash. It’s called parking money. I might have $20 in loonies and toonies in my vehicle for parking at work, but I might also have $5 or less.
If I notice the young lady across the street going house to house selling cookies, I’ll take a quick run out to my vehicle to check my change supply so I’m ready when she gets to our house. If I don’t have enough, I know my wife has her own little stash, so I’ll hijack her car keys and steal some money from her console. It never goes unnoticed. I don’t know how she does it, but she always knows how much change she has in her vehicle. If I take a loonie, she’ll let me know the next day that she’s missing a loonie!
Hey, she doesn’t even have to pay for parking at work! If she has change in her vehicle that she doesn’t need, and it’s just lying there for someone to take it who happens to have a set of her car keys, whose fault is that? She shouldn’t leave change lying around in her locked vehicle if she knows I’m just going to steal it anyway, right? Anyone with me on this?
So, if you’re a Girl Guide or anyone else selling delicious edibles door-to-door, make sure you stop by the Lewis household. As long as I know where my wife’s car keys are, you’ll have a sale and I’ll have a full tummy.
