Stink bugs, worms, and boondoggle: Welcome to Boy Scout day camp!

13 Jun

“Apparently it’s summer.

At least that’s what my computer tells me. The little display on my taskbar says June is halfway over. I suppose that’s technically correct, but the weather as of late makes me wonder if the motivational posters calendar hanging on my cubicle wall — which says it’s April 2006 — isn’t closer to reality. What comes around goes around, they say. And if last November was filled with warm, sunny days, it’s only appropriate that June be inundated by belated spring rainstorms and chilly temperatures.

The ice was broken early on when a collective cry of ‘wwwwe’ made me turn my head.

‘that’s Kaden,’ Jalen told me. ‘Somebody said they’d give him 10 bucks to eat a worm.'”

The above is an excerpt of my column this week.  Click over to the TTB for the full story.

    That’s a great column. I went to Girl Scout camp when I was a kid. I imagine we tried the patience of our leaders just as much, but I don’t remember anyone eating bugs for money.

    Your column does bring back some memories though.
