What Girl Scout Cookies Mean To Me

Girl Scout cookies mean summer camp.
Girl Scout cookies mean arts and crafts.
Girl Scout cookies mean learning to work together with people you hatehateHATE.
Girl Scout cookies mean Bridging Ceremonies walking across the Golden Gate bridge.
Girl Scout cookies mean dancing the Electric Slide.
Girl Scout cookies mean taking classes to become a Red Cross certified baby sitter leading to a first job.
Girl Scout cookies mean learning how to fold a flag.
Girl Scout cookies mean sewing a waterproof butt cushion with bright orange yarn.
Girl Scout cookies mean creating a project plan and following the steps to completion.
Girl Scout cookies mean tours of the Jelly Belly factory.
Girl Scout cookies mean becoming a better person, a better citizen, and a better leader.

And that’s why I buy Girl Scout cookies from every girl of every age* who asks. Someone else bought the cookies 15-25 years ago when I was in Troop 39, Napa-Solano Council, so I could do all the things above and be in the same organization as these women and so many more over the past 100 years of Girl Scouting.

Now, it’s my turn.
