Every week for twelve years of my life I said, “I will do my best to be honest, to be fair, to help where I am needed, to be cheerful, to be a sister to every Girl Scout, to respect authority, to use resources wisely, to protect the world around me, and to show respect for myself and others through my words and actions.” Every week I swore to be cheerful.

They finally changed the Girl Scout laws. Girls can feel whatever the hell they want. It’s about damned time.

Sometimes, I feel cheerful. Sometimes I don’t.
