Ok Guys here' s the deal with me, I wasn't a geek - But every thing I learned about Boy / Girl relationships, I learned at girl scout events and scout dances.
I'm also proud of my Danish heritage , I was taught to say what we mean and mean what we say .
This bit of adult relationships in our 50's where its a free form dance and everyone switching partners at the wink of a eye has my stymied. Where things are a bit nebulous. I don't know the damn playbook that you guys are using.
But Baby, this is my playbook - in Scouts I learned to be self reliant - I can hang a door If I need to, but I also I love and appreciate it when a door is opened for me, and on of the sexiest things in life is when your guy shuts the bedroom door with a glint in his eye.
In Scouting I learned to sail, to canoe,to row; to set my own path thru the water, thru woods, thru life. And to find my way back again. I learned to compete ( the dances where ruthless). That sometimes nothing is better then something. I do not send mixed signals, I took first place in semaphore. I know that when your lost in the woods to stay put and some one will find you. Also I know how to rub to sticks together to set the woods ablaze . Not only do I know where pladies is , I know that I am made of sheer stardust .That men do not not totally lie to us - for when they say we are beautiful they are always telling telling the truth. and what absolute glorious fun it is to take a boy scout on a snipe hunt! I have learned that it is perfectly right to be both a flirt and a feminist. Learned to kiss in scouts. earned a merit badge in it in fact. Learned Not to sit home and wait for the phone to ring -,for there is always a canoe with your name on it, people to meet , things to do. Life is a short adventure. LIVE !
You might ask why then did my marriages fail - well I learned too late that the first one was kicked out of BS troop 69 for his attitude ( NO SHItT ! kid you not !! ) and hubby number two was recipient of sign of the ( straight and narrow ) arrow award, OPPS ! I just wasn't interpreting the signs correctly.
I am now looking for a Man, not a boy. someone who when he hands me a line something substantial is connected to it, not a dream. Someone who when on a hike will hold the tree branches back,. then let them snap on my ass as I pass thru.... cause he won't be my
if he doesn't have a sense of play
So Darlin', I expect to be treated by you as you wish your daughter to be treated. I expect you to be a todal angel on a date- and I will be so disappointed if that halo doesn't slip now and then again. I might not have a clue what play book your using - but Baby, this is my playbook.
The Girl Scout Law
I will do my best to be
honest and fair,
friendly and helpful,
considerate and caring,
courageous and strong, and
responsible for what I say and do,
respect myself and others,
use resources wisely,
make the world a better place, and
be a sister to every Girl Scout.
