I have something on my nicely curvaceous chest that I really want to off. Nope. It’s not the light lemon crop top with spaghetti straps that show my nipples off so nicely. 😉
Yes, I have missed weaving my erotic mind around the prose of SexyWhispers—can you tell?
It’s the Girl Scouts. See, in theory, I totally approve of and support the Girl Scouts. Make girls more secure and build their self-esteem. Sounds good. Dress them in plain brown wrappers so they all look the same and recite the same drivel that borders on brainwashing, well…when you put it that way, it does kind of bother my female mentality. But, I digress.
I try to support anything that teaches young girls not to be twits that grow up to be stupid women undervalued by themselves and overvalued by society as breeder cows. Pissed anyone off yet? Good…I hope so.
You see, a literature professor of mine once told me to pay close attention when someone tries to piss you off because:
- They have found your emotional trigger.
- They are trying to reach past your wall protection into a place where your logic lives.
- When the emotions are removed, you might be surprised that you actually agree with them.
The professor was an idiot. BUT, his theory was right. It taught me to listen to people all the way through and find the message without emotional tangles.
Now, I want to be completely clear. I support the Girl Scouts. You know that idiot that buys 4 boxes of Girl Scout cookies every time even if she has to go to the bank and come back? Yeah…that’s me! When the Girl Scouts took up a cause that I completely heart, support for the troops, my soul melted like butter on grits (a southern visual—I realize!). However, I have a hard and fast rule. While I always buy a box of cookies from every little Girl Scout standing there, I absolutely will not buy cookies from the mothers.
Ok…will give you a moment to think that through.
Translation: I came out of the store the other day and there was a table full of GS cookies there. Big signs about the cause of supporting the troops overseas. I am mobbed by three little girls wanting me to buy cookies as moms stood back to watch. I pretended to let them talk me into it even though I had money in hand. I let each one take a turn at selling me a box of cookies (BTW…you are all getting cookies in your email tomorrow!!)
Day 2: Same store. New girls and moms. Same table and signs. The girls are running around playing tag and the moms are selling cookies. They are wearing badges that the other girls did not have proclaiming top sales positions in our county. I stopped briefly and passed by. I wont buy Girl Scout cookies from moms that are in it for the contest.
- What message does it send to a young girl when she is allowed to run around and let mom do the work for her?
- Isn’t this the equivalent to doing kids homework for them?
- Worse…because someone is who is playing fair is actually losing out on the prize…isn’t this actually cheating? In the Girl Scouts?
Something is SO wrong with this. And either way, I won’t play. The cookies inside of the store are cheaper and they don’t come with a side of bad parenting laced with a future of misdirection. ~~Dee
