Pondering My Life Choices

Pondering my life choices


I took a Buzzfeed quiz to see what kind of Girl Scout cookie I am.

I got Shortbread.


That’s the most boring, bland, dull cookie in the bunch.

“Well, yeah,” said the Grown Son, with a dagger to my heart.

He suggested that I retake the quiz from the perspective of an underaged party girl who has just slammed a couple of beer bongs.

I retook the quiz.

I got Caramel Delight.

Apparently my alter ego is a more colorful cookie than I am.

I am going to spend the rest of the weekend pondering my life choices.

As I was leaving for the grocery store, I asked the Grown Son to pull the trash cans in.

He complained that he has to do everything around here.

He slammed the door and ignored my request.

And then he texted me a list of things to buy for him.

I left him on read.

After several more texting attempts, he had an epiphany.

He sent me a pic of the cans that he had put away.

I added his items to my cart.

Lesson learned.
