What it means to be an Eagle Scout
Fri, 18 Jun 1999 21:23:48 EDT
Here's a Father's Day message on this topic of "What it means to be an Eagle
Scout. Hopefully no embarrassment to anyone will occur.
Imagine that you are sitting at home relaxing in your favorite chair.
The phone rings "Ring, ring"
"Hello Dad" (It's your mid 20s daughter on the phone)
"I have something I want to tell you" (Blood pressure increases, pulse rate
"There's this guy that I'm dating" (Blood pressure goes much higher, pulse
"I'm really very serious about him" (Blood pressure spikes, pulse rate way
"He's an Eagle Scout" (Blood pressure drops to normal, cooling waves of
relief flow over one)
To the Fathers out there and those who made it possible for them to be
Fathers, have a wonderful day.
