We knocked on a door, and a woman answered. Eric explained to her that we were out collecting money for the Boy Scouts of America, and asked if she would like to donate. She said that she didn't want to, and then she said, "And you want to know why I don't want to?"
I didn't particularly want to know why, and I'm sure Eric didn't either, but we both smiled, and Eric said that he would like to know why. (that little liar!)
The woman told us that she didn't support the BSA because she had all daughters, and that apparently the Boy Scouts don't share their money with the Girl Scouts. She didn't feel like that was fair, and so she had no desire to help us with our little fund drive.
I've (obviously) never been a Boy Scout, and I wasn't a Girl Scout either. (I opted to be a part of a 4-H club instead, and boy was that GREAT! Sometime maybe I'll do a post about 4-H. I'm a real believer, let me tell you!) So, I don't know any of the details as far as the Boys and Girls sharing their scout money, or any of that.
As I think about it though, I get a little giggle-ly when I try to imagine what "Boy Scout Cookie Month" would be like.
Honestly, don't you?
