This probably won't work, but what have I got to lose? It's my site after all :).
My 8yr old is doing the Girl Scout Cookie thing, and as every parent knows the days of door-to-door are long gone, and we're the ones who are pestered to hit up our coworkers and such. Over the years the Girl Scouts have really turned this into a science, though, I'll give them that. They've even started really pushing the "Donate My Cookies To The Troops" option, so every coworker who says "I'd love to but I can't, I'm on a diet" no longer has that excuse - you can still buy some cookies and send them to our boys overseas.
So, anybody wanna buy some cookies for the troops? :) (I'm not even going to pretend that I can ship you cookies.) They're $4/box. Here's how we make it work - email me that you're interested, I'll get your details and then you can PayPal me the money. If I had Shakespeare-related rewards to offer I would do so, but right now I don't know what that would be exactly so I can't promise anything.
This depends entirely on you trusting me, of course, which is why in any normal circumstance I would never even bother. But I think at this point I've got a fairly loyal enough readership that at least some of you know perfectly well that you can trust me, I haven't screwed anybody yet. It may still flop, but that won't be because you don't trust me, it'll be because you don't love America. :) <--- smiley clearly pointed out, for the humor impaired.
So, consider it an experiment. If you want to support the site by helping my kid reach whatever the next milestone is in her "If I sell 50 boxes I get a stuffed animal but if I sell 80 boxes I get a bigger stuffed animal!" quest, and make some soldiers fat in the process :), let's try it and see if we can make it work.
If you think it's a stupid idea and you're annoyed at me for bringing it up, then move on, nothing to see, won't happen again.
