WTF? Buffy

Missouri Girl Scouts Fight For Their Camps

*note* Like all my columns, this was first published in the newspapers Albion New Era, Churubusco News, and Northwest News. This one came out on August 28th.


SLIGHTLY OFF THE MARK


           For probably obvious reasons, I was never a Girl Scout.

           As a kid I might have happily joined, because that’s where the girls were. At an age when other boys were into baseball and spitting contests, I saw the future. But alas, I was put into all-boy gym classes, which explains why I don’t like sports.

           Since I wasn’t one myself, I married a Girl Scout. She’s an adult Scout, mind you.
