Scouts-L Mail Archive for February of 1999: Chip
Fri, 12 Feb 1999 10:27:36 -0800
My name is Chip.
Maybe I can be your friend.
Perhaps even your closest friend someday.
I am little.
I don't require much room.
Might I sit and keep you company?
You won't even notice I'm here, sometimes.
I am agreeable.
I think like you most of the time.
When others don't agree, you can count on me.
I like the way you think and know you are very smart.
I might grow some.
But I might not.
I might stay small enough for you to carry me always.
Either way, we can enjoy each other's company.
Someone rejected your idea?
But, it was so wonderful, so perfect.
How could they not agree with your great plan.
For me? Why thank you ever so much.
Thank you also for not complaining that I have grown.
It's pleasing that I have not become a burden to carry.
Someone disagreed with your ideas again?
That is just so rude, so blind to reality.
Sometimes it feels like it's just you and me.
Let me always be your friend.
We see things so much clearer than the others do.
And I so enjoy the view from up here on your shoulder.
Do you recognize Chip?
Is Chip enjoying the view from your shoulder today?
The above just sort of hit me this morning. You may like it, you may
hate it. If you like it, feel free to use it with your troop or other
If you hate it, delete it or ignore it, but please,
don't turn and talk to Chip about it.
