Have I ever told you that I once joined the Girl Scouts?
And never once did I attend a meeting or sell those delectable girl scout cookies. Which, now that I think about it, I totally should’ve gotten involved, JUST to get my hands on a box of thin mints.
I joined the girl scouts because I wanted to be a clown. Nooo, girl scouts aren’t clowns. I wanted to take “clown classes” and one of the requirements to take the clown class was to join the girl scouts. I have no idea why.
I just remember my mom telling me that I had to sign up for girl scouts and I was all like “Girls scouts? That’s lame.” (like clown classes were any cooler).
My ultimate goal in life at that time was to be a clown when I grow up. Let’s admit it….I CAN be funny every once in a while. So, if you’re kind of funny, then obviously you’re destined to be a clown.
In the end I never did get to take my clown classes because I guess not enough people signed up (I wonder why?).
But thank the LORD, that I never took those classes..because we all know that I would have never lived it down.
