Thin Mints by Daniel O'Shea



With Girl Scout Cookie season in full swing, I thought I'd share with you an audio short story by one of my favorite twitter pals, Daniel O'Shea. 

Nothing like the hearts and flowers you probably imagine when you're stuffing your face full of cookies, Thin Mints is a sickening tale of drug abuse and the desperation that arises once the meth high is gone and the sweet smell of cookie money can be found within easy reach of any Girl Scout. Thinking they have an easy score, listen to how quickly things go wrong for two meth heads that didn't bother to learn the Girl Scout motto.  It's okay, some people have to learn the meaning of being prepared the hard way. And these two men, well let's just say, they're no exception.  Enjoy!

This is one of my favorites! Rumor has it I have an unhealthy obsession with Dan's voice. It's not my fault the guy knows how to use it. =)

Thanks for stopping by the blog, Paul.
