Beware of the Cookie Monsters

Wouldn't you know it as I walked out of the local big box grocery there was a Cookie Monster standing there.With a big two teeth missing smile she sweetly asked "Would you like to buy some Girl Guide cookies?"What could I do,I handed over a five and got a loonie in change and a box of Vanilla and Chocolate cookies and I was on my way.Thankfully,they weren't selling the chocolate mint ones then I hand over a twenty and get no change.So watch out they're out there with their cookies just waiting in ambush for you.

My youngest is a girl scout - I get first pick! Do-si-Dos are my weak spot.

I was wondering if there is a conversion factor out there to convert a box of cookies into how many miles it takes to burn them off.
