It's that time of year again...time for those totally evil, but equally yummy little chocolaty minty bits of heaven.
There are two or three Thursdays each month on our office calendar that we affectionately call Black Thursday. I work on design and construction contracts for a local government and these are the big due dates each month when we are SLAMMED to the max with contract work for items that need City Council approval. The deadlines are tight and stress is usually at an all time high each Black Thursday.
Well, guess what today was and guess what was delivered to my office promptly after looking through my in-box FULL of stuff. Yup, you guessed it...these little beauties. Two boxes of them...
At first I put the boxes on my back table, thinking I would forget about them. Then, about 10am when the stress started to fully set in I turned my chair and there they were! I swear the boxes were smiling at me! After I polished off about 1/2 of a tube, I put the rest of it up at the front desk for the zombies to eat (I swear the guys in my office can smell food from about 15-20 feet away).
After lunch I settled back in for more contract fun and by 2:30pm I had the 2nd tube out and was half way through it just thoughtlessly chomping one cookie after another. Finally, I snapped out of it and not only got rid of the rest of that tube, but the 2nd box as well!
I am just totally helpless around these cookies! They are pure evil!
