732. Divine Intervention Starts With "D"

It’s no secret that I’ve been Depressed lately.  Damn it, I Dig Deeper, trying to figure out where these Dismal emotions are coming from.  Daunted, I Drag myself from bed, make a latte, and Drink up.  Then it Dawns on me.  This Detrimental Disease, this Darkness that has Descended upon me, is Due to one thing:  my supply of girl scout cookies is Depleted. 

I am Despondent. 
The thin mint Diet is but a Distant memory now, every Diabolical morsel having been Devoured within the first three days of Delivery.  Why, oh, why, Do they have to make those Delicate cookies so Diminutive?  This is beyond Disappointment; I am Defeated and Dismayed, Deprived of the Deliciousness I Definitely Deserve.   

The Husband, of course, Doesn’t understand my Dysfunctional relationship with the GS cookies.  He laughs a Derisive laugh, rolls his eyes in a Derogatory gesture, and tells me Dismissively to “get over it.”  He is, without a Doubt, Deplorable.  I shoot Daggers out the slits of my eyes at him, but he walks away Distracted and oblivious to my Displeasure. 
“Darling, eat another Danish,” he says Diplomatically, as if I cannot Discern the Difference between one Dessert and another.  I regard him and his Disgraceful substitutions with Disdain.

I really Don’t want to Discuss it with him, but I am Determined to set him straight:  “Dear, Don’t tell me what to Do …” I begin, Dizzy from the hunger.        
A knock at the Door interrupts my Diatribe. 

I answer, and there stands a neighbor Dad and his Daughter and their Dog.  The Darling Daughter is Dressed in some sort of green uniform and clutching a Document.  “We’re sorry to Disturb you, Doctor MOV,” says Daniela to me, “but it was time to Drop off your second order of girl scout cookies!” 
This is like a Delightful Dream with Doves soaring and Dolphins Diving.  I want to hug Daniela and promote her to girl scout Dignitary.  I am no longer the Disillusioned Dame I was mere minutes ago. 

“Thank you,” Declares The Husband, walking over and handing her a check, “My wife had Developed somewhat of an addiction to these cookies, ha ha.”  How Dare he compare these innocent cookies to Drugs?!      
The girl Departs.  I Dab my Damp eyes with a tissue, my Demented Demeanor shifts, and I Dance a victory jig.    

No longer Distressed, I scoop up the cookie boxes (three Dozen!) and Disappear.

  7. I still have a secret supply of GS cookies in my closet. It helps that I was the cookie mom for my daughter's troop this year and I was able to snag some leftovers at the end of the sale!

  11. I was going to try and write a response with a bunch of "d" words, but my brain stopped. Well done!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I love thin mints!! Yum...sorry to hear your supply is almost out. Think of it this way...you can't eat them with chopsticks ;) LOL

    ReplyDelete
  13. WOW You got in every D in the dictionary... almost. That is very clever and it would have taken me weeks to write. Good job.

  14. I don't even care for mint flavored things, but for some reason if there are thin mints in front of me I will eat them.

  17. I've never had a girl scout cookie.Am I missing out?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Don't be depressed. That was a dandy diatribe to display D.

    ReplyDelete
  19. That is a delightful bunch of d's. I hope the depressed days are gone, as three boxes of cookies should do the trick.

  20. Your Drabble was Definitely Delicious! Loved your repetition of "D" words.

    Stopping in via the A-Z blogging challenge and decided to follow.

  21. Funny. Impressive, too. Doing the A-Z on one blog is challenging enough. Doing 2 seems impossible.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Ha. I admit I've never experienced the official thin mints...Girl Guides of Canada sells something similar, but it's not quite what you guys have.

    Our Guides do sell these amazing chocolate and vanilla layer cookies. They are delish.

  26. lol LOVE it!! I have the same addiction with 3 Musketeers bars...lol

  27. I haven't had GS cookies in forever. I think enslaving young children into door to door salesmen is a dying custom. People are too afraid of stranger danger.

  28. Bahahhahahahahaahahaha...
    This is my favourite post in this challenge so far.
    I am also addicted to those biscuits.
    Hence my B.

  30. I've not had GSC in over 3 years. Has anyone seen fit to send me a care package? Hells to the no.

    ReplyDelete
  31. LOL. Not quite the kind of divine intervention that people usually bring up. :)

    Thanks for coming by my blog!

  35. Ha, Love it! the absolute perfect post for D!

  36. My husband can not resist GS cookies. He just buys one or two boxes every time he is asked. But with so many teenage boys in our house, I am lucky if I get one cookie out of a box before they are gone. I wish I'd thought ahead and hidden a few boxes for myself!

  37. MOV,

  40. You do know, don't you, according to 60 minutes that sugar is addictive as cocaine? Seriously, it was on last week's show.

When you write a comment, it makes me feel like I won the lottery or at the very least like I ate an ice-cream sundae. (This has nothing to do with the fact that I did just eat an ice-cream sundae.)
