Me, approaching her little table outside the grocery store: Hi. How much for a box?
Little girl: $4.50. Or 5 boxes for $20, which is a really good deal!
Me: Five boxes is more than I can eat.
Little girl: You could buy them and donate the extras to the food bank.
Me, changing the subject slightly: Uh...what kinds of cookies do you have?
Little girl, describes in detail:

LG: Good choice! They will go very well with a cup of tea.
Me: And a box of Thank U Berry Much.
Little girl, sensing victory: Would you like to donate 3 boxes to the food bank?
Me, realizing I actually don't have $20, and also it might be better to donate something more nutritious: Not today. Thank u berry much.
Tonight I wish I had bought a few boxes more.
Now, about that craving...guess I'll have to settle for a bowl of ice cream instead.
