The Great Cookie Caper

09 Mar

Call Scooby Doo.  Call Sherlock Holmes.  Heck call my cousin Sherlock Bones.  We have quite the mystery here at the Hotel Thompson.  This is cookie season – you know Girl Scout cookies.  We here ❤ the Girl Scouts.  Our front door has a sign that reads, “No Soliciting… unless you have Girl Scout Cookies”.  That sign is fully enforced – snorts and rolls with laughter.

So mom buys boxes of Girl Scouts cookies (I’m ashamed to say how many but I can tell you they freeze well for during the year in emergency cases).  She gets her box of gold and brings them home.  Dad’s all time favorite is Samoas.  Dad’s mouth has been watering all day long since mom called and told him she had him a stash.  He gets him a tall glass of milk and he is going to have him a few while watching Jeopardy – which is another post for another day.

He reaches for his box and what the pig?  The box is light.  Maybe it’s a new formula – light? Snorts – no really the box is empty!  What the cream cheese he says followed by where are my cookies?!  I need cookies in my belly.  He bellows for mom to come here.  She does and he hands her the box and says, “Are you playing with me?”  That’s when she feels the box which is EMPTY.  The box is sealed, stamped and still intact.  Mom takes these pictures for proof.

 Someone had ONE job to do and guess what?  They failed miserably!  Snorts.  Mom called the person she bought the cookies from and explained what happened.  Even he was like what?  Mom did bring the box to the guy the next day and the box was replaced but…the mystery is still there.  What happened to the cookies?

Were they not put in the box to begin with?  Were they invisible for people on a DIEt?  How many other people got empty boxes?  Has this happened to you before?

And let me just nip the rumor going around – snorts oinks – me and Houdini did NOT – repeat DID NOT – have anything to do with the mysterious disappearance of dad’s cookies.  There was no Mission Impossible music playing and there was no ninja moves being done by either of us.  For real.  Innocent the both of us.

      You think? You should have seen the look on dad’s face. PRICELESS. I think the man really wanted those cookies. XOXO – Bacon

      I know! One girl scout had one job to pack cookies and guess what. She didn’t do that one job. Daddy got no cookies from that box this date. Snorts and laughs. XOXO – Bacon

    ooooh what a rip off… an empty box of cookies… maybe that were helium cookieswhat fly away when you open the box? bro, I’m glad that cookie selling is not common here… I wrote a post today about my mommas homemade cookies… think that explains why I’m glad that no one bought cookies from my momma…..

      Snorts brother! I read that and was trying not to snort with laughter. I mean with her Hell-bow being all messed up and everything. I think the Girl Scouts were trying to tell daddy the ugly word – DIEt. Snorts! XOXO – Bacon

    When it comes to missing cookies, I’m usually the culprit, but I’m claiming innocence on this one as well. Must have been a defective box.

    • PigLove

      03/09/2015 at 2:45 pm

      It just had to be a defective box. Because I *know* me and Houdini didn’t get any cookies. Nope. None. Zilch. Nada. Not even a crumb. <> XOXO – Bacon

    Aww, some guy at Girl Guide cookie headquarters is playing with your mind. It is a plot to slowly drive a devoted cookie monster, of the girl guide persuasions slowly out of their mind. Keep an eye on your dad Bacon….he could flip out anytime.

      Shoki my friend – I think you are right. My daddy went over the edge that night. Full glass of milk and no cookies. Least to say, he lost his cookies… literally. Snorts and rolls with laughter. Poor guy. I always knew that about him. XOXO – Bacon

        hahaha….what a dad….you gotta admit he’s different. The first argument mom and dad had when they got married was over cookies….you must do a blog….like show and tell on the first argument had between partners….it would be priceless.

    its the kebbler elf’s fault – they are jealous about people buying girl scout cookies so they have been secretly sabotaging the boxes 🙂

      Oh it did. Daddy was astonished and shocked and a little disappointed as to having no cookies. I just wonder how many boxes ‘slipped’ through the factory like that. And wouldn’t you think that someone would have noticed how light and empty feeling the box felt? That was the other weird part about it. Very curious indeed. XOXO – Bacon

        We are twins my friend. TWINS. I love to go bouncey off of everything. It’s so much fun! And lately – barks – barks – lately I’ve learned how to move my big bed which has great bounciability. Once moved to my favorite spot in front of the sofa, I climb on top of the sofa and then jump on my bed bouncing like a trampoline. It’s so fun! I just bark and bark having fun until daddy makes me stop – the spoil sport – barks! ❤ Houdini
