Scout encounter


By CHRIS MILLSPAUGH

Ding-Dong

(Door opens)

Yes?

Howzitgoin?

Pretty fair, you?

Not bad.

Nice day.

I think so.

Think it will snow this weekend?

Haven't a clue.

Well, can I help you?

Maybe.

How so?

Are you hungry?

No, can't say that I am.

Why not?

I just had breakfast.

Too bad.

Huh?

It's better when you're hungry.

It is?

Sure.

Are you hungry?

No, can't say that I am.

You can't, eh?

That's right.

So, what can I do for you?

How about those Yankees?

What about them?

I was just trying to break the ice.

Oh.

I'm warming up.

OK.

I'd like to ask you something.

Go ahead, shoot.

You like camping, arts and crafts and America?

Yes I do.

All-righty, then.

Wha?

Don't you recognize my uniform?

Can't say that I do.

Can't say or don't?

Don't.

Girl Scout uniform—wanna buy some cookies?

All right, I'll take two boxes.

Can I say it?

What? OK, go ahead.

Nice talking to you.
