Oh, I'm so glad you clarified that! I really don't like it when kids
call me "Sir." ;D
My guys call me Mrs. Porter. Most of the adults are called by either
their last name or their Mad Cow name - sometimes with Mr. or Mrs.
attached to that. Mr. Rope Killer is our SM now. Our former SM is
called Mr. Larry. He chose that as a Wolf leader and it stuck.
Some of the kids I've taught in pre-school are close to moving into the
troop! (Man, I've taught pre-school for a long time!) They still call
me Ms. Cathy, so I don't expect that to change.
On the other hand, when my husband had a Venture Crew, they called him
John and still do.
