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.
