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.
         
For all intents, my wife grew up at a place called Camp Latonka, a Missouri Girl Scout facility where she spent every summer, becoming a counselor in training and then a counselor and horse wrangler before I married her and took her away from all that. It’s the only part of marrying me she really regrets, other than my puns.Collapse )
