There is no prose being written today that compares with it. The writers aren't concerned so much about the major issues of the day like stockpiling missiles or giving aid to the contras as they are with grass-roots grievances. Like the street light being installed outside of their bedroom or the road that has been under construction in front of their favorite bar for three years. I saw a letter the other day from a woman who was really ticked off with the Girl Scouts. Yes! Girl Scouts! The little army of Willy Lomans who peddle cholesterol to your arteries and defy you to say no after you have looked into those Bambi eyes. The woman acknowledged that it is unsafe anymore for most of them to go door-to-door selling their cookies, but she is ticked off that the ones who really At Wit's End By Erma Bombeck hustle the cookies today are not Girl Scouts, but moms, dads, aunts, uncles and grandparents. And how could Scouts have the dignity to take credit for cookies they never sold! Lighten up, sweetie. I cannot believe anyone is so naive as to believe that someone called Crockery Hillheimer (or some such name) ever sold 40,000 boxes of cookies personally. It's the way kids are. They try. Their interest span is limited. I found that out the first year my daughter was a Girl Scout. I volunteered to accept delivery of the cookies in my garage for the entire troop. One dark morning around 3 a.m. they delivered those little suckers, and I never saw a single Girl Scout again. It was as if they had all gone underground. By using threats of reprisals (I think I said things like, "You take 60 boxes of Scot Teas or your dog dies!"), I called the mothers who began to arrive one by one ... mothers without buttons on their coats ... mothers on their way to give birth ... mothers who didn't even know a Girl Scout ... mothers who had cookies in their freezers from four years ago ... mothers who were 25 and looked 60. I don't know what they did with their cookies and I don't care. I took my 40 boxes and disposed of them in my own way. Grandma was the first on the list for 10 boxes. Grandma is always first on the list for everything from peanut brittle to fruit tree seeds. The rest I got pretty creative with. I made two gallons of crushed cookies to use for topping on ice cream. I punched holes in several dozen and used them for napkin rings. I used them for poker chips. I used them for tips when we went out to dinner. I made necklaces, earrings and bracelets for gifts. I put them in the bird feeder and put a few aside to make into Christmas ornaments. The motto for Scouts is "Be Prepared." The motto for mothers of Girl Scouts is, "Be Prepared to Eat a Lot of Cookies." Club News Hoff Wins Lions' Club Prize KEWANNA—Dick Hoff, Rt. 2, Kewanna, won the $100 prize offered by the Grass Creek Lions Club for the winning guess of the "sink time" of the annual car sink contest.
