You buy whatever is cheapest... or at least I do. When there are 30 kids, you can't afford to buy what you really want.
This is what I got back over the last year.
Magazine Subscription: I think I read one issue and started handing them off to a family member - BAD CHOICE
Holiday Ribbon Organizer: I think this ended up in the trash - BAD CHOICE
Silicon Cupcake Holders: These are collecting dust on my nightstand... why on the nightstand? I have no idea - BAD CHOICE
Girl Scout Cookies: I got these last night. At church. In front of the youth and kids. These were the one thing that I was looking forward too. Obviously everyone else was too - BEST CHOICE
Let me elaborate on this Cookie Phenomenon.
I opened a box to try, mouth watering and ignoring how much fat they contained. Next thing I know, I have hungry teenage eyes staring and begging with their eyes. "Would you like one?" They didn't have to be asked twice. I turn around and there's a sweet little face staring at me, I say again "Would you like one?". Minutes later the little girl who sold them to me ask "Where'd you get those from?" (Really?) I say, "Would you like one?".
Those little cookies barely made it home. Too bad everyone else didn't have radar for a ribbon organizer and silicon cupcake holders.
That, Ladies & Gents, is the joy of being a Sunday School teacher... If you see me with a sign on the corner you know why.
