Haiku Friday: Simple Pleasures

An unexpected
surprise tonight, hidden in
a closet corner

One final box of
Thin Mint Girl Scout cookies I
forgot months ago

The perfect hiding
spot, and now the perfect snack:
chocolatey goodness

I was searching the house tonight for something chocolate to snack on while watching TV (Grey’s Anatomy premiere, anyone?), when I remembered that at one time I stashed a bunch of Girl Scout cookies in the hall closet. I peeked in there, moving a few things aside, and there it was: the lone box of Thin Mints. I think this is the longest a box of Thin Mints has lasted in my house.

And they were delicious.

To play along for Haiku Friday, follow these steps:

1. Write your own haiku on your blog. You can do one or many, all following a theme or just random. What’s a haiku, you ask? Click here.

2. Sign the Mister Linky below with your name and the link to your haiku post (the specific post URL, not your main blog URL). DON’T sign unless you have a haiku this week. If you need help with this, please let me know.

3. Pick up a Haiku Friday button to display on the post or in your sidebar by clicking the button at the top.

REMEMBER: Do not post your link unless you have a haiku this week! I will delete any links without haiku!
