Lady Scouts by Tiffany Blair

A Woman, A Story, & A Life In-Between: Lady Scouts

I keep hearing so much about the 2013 Boy Scout national jamboree that is taking place in the area this month, and I can’t help but feel slighted that there isn’t a similar opportunity available to women like myself. It’s important that we don’t lose our senses of duty and camaraderie just because we are too “mature” for “traditional” scouting organizations. With the right leadership, I think Lady Scouts could be the next big thing. Every troop meeting will start with Pub Quiz, and our camping excursions would be more along the lines of attending midnight showings of particularly riveting chick flicks. And imagine the BADGES! A tanning badge for knowing when enough is enough, a frenemies badge for being cordial to that one friend of a friend (you know the one)…badges for accessorizing outfits properly, and for gracefully playing off embarrassing autocorrect moments, just to name a few. We’ll need a logo, of course. I feel as though there should be some sort of fabulous shoe involved in the logo, or maybe a wine bottle opener, or both – the sky’s the limit when you’re a Lady Scout! Hey, that’s not a bad motto…
