This is the funniest thing I have read in ages!! Thanks for sending it to the list - since everyone of the points can be seen at some campout!!! (And I think half of them apply to me!!) I'm printing it out and posting it in our troop meeting room - one of the standing jokes is on campouts in the mornings a knock comes on my tent door and I open the flap to find a Scout crouched out of the way, cowering with a cup of coffee extended towards me. As soon as I take it, the Scout jumps up, runs back to the cooking area shouting that he had survived waking a bear!! It is (apparently)quite an honor to get to deliver my coffee and wake me up in the morning! (I think!! - oh well, at least I have a good sense of humor with or without coffee!)
Thanks again for the laugh - I'm sure the Scouts will get a kick out of it, too!
