Girl Scouts using " the look" to pedal their cookies. You just can't say no. I'll go as far as to say "the look" earns them a merit badge, and I blame them for my spare tire. Just Kiddin ;) - toadstool57, 2007-02-28: 07:43:00

Thanks, Alchemist. It's the sort of thing one can only get away with once, though. :) - Osomatic, 2007-03-01: 14:26:00
