Sometimes it is better to be subtle in your message.
When our Jambo contingent stopped at Union Station in D.C., some of our
older scouts came looking to adults to "ask them a question". It was
obvious that they were looking for a reaction to the magnetic earrings
they had purchased, and wanted us to give them a hard time about wearing
the ear rings.
In surprising agreement, the other 1st SA and I neither one said a word.
After they left, we asked a younger scout where the other had purchased
the earrings. He and I went to the same store, and waited until there
were no scouts around. We both purchased magnetic earrings, and wore
them for the rest of the afternoon.
By that evening, all the earrings had disappeared.
