I’ve never made this mistake, nor had anyone I was dating make it with me, but the thought of something like this happening struck me as being hysterically funny. Yes, I did make up some stuff for this comic strip. I occasionally do it for my other web comic as well, “The Adventures of Cynical Woman.” What can I say? Sometimes real life is a little boring. But not often.
Very little is boring right now, in fact. That’s because your’s truly signed up to be Cookie Mom for my daughter’s Brownie troop. I may have been an ROTC cadet and an officer in the Army Reserves, but I never had any experience with the Girl Scouts until this year. And boy, has it been an experience. The mom who conned me into being cookie mom said the job was low key. She LIED! I’m up to my assets in paperwork right now, and scrambling to keep up with everything. But I keep telling myself, I dealt with much more difficult tasks in the Army Reserves. Like running weapons qualification ranges. Being cookie mom isn’t nearly as bad as being the OIC for a weapons qualification range, because no one my daughter’s Brownie troop is likely to shoot anybody by accident. I hope.
Have fun this week, and thank you to everyone who’s left comments on the blog or sent me emails. I really do appreciate the feedback. It’s good to know people still want to read these comics even twenty years after they were originally published.
