Thank you to Two Writing Teachers
for hosting the Slice of Life
During the month of March, the Girl Scouts are out and about selling Girl Scout Cookies. Yesterday, Nat's troop took their turn at a Walmart.
The girls worked the cookie booth and were able to sell about 160 boxes of cookies in two hours. That means in 120 minutes they sold more than a box a minute. In those 120 minutes there were some special moments that I consider highlights of the sales-"Cookie Moments".
At one point a gentleman came out of the Walmart.
"Hello there girls."
"Would you like to buy some cookies?"
"Yes! I would thank you. Which ones are your favorites?"
Nat jumped to pick up the box of Do Si Dos and show him. "Here's my favorite!"
Olivia held up the Trefoils.
He gently explained, "Here you go (handing us $8). Now you and you go and enjoy those cookies."
The girls thanked him as he walked away. So sweet.
Another lady come up to our table. She handed our leader a twenty dollar bill and said, "I'd like to make a donation." Wow-so generous.
A couple came up to make a purchase and the boyfriend said it was "Molly's" birthday. So we sang happy birthday to her. She smiled from ear to ear. They decided to purchase three boxes of cookies. LOL!
These are the times that made our booth time lots of fun.
