Let me share a middle school story…

“I grew up in a Navy family. From 6th grade to 10th grade, I attended five different schools. My involvement in Girl Scouts, church and competitive swimming made changing schools and meeting new friends easier. I loved Girl Scouts. The meetings, projects, achievements and camping introduced me to a variety of people and interests. My favorite activities were “snipe hunts” and telling ghost stories around the campfire to younger scouts. I would place a flashlight under my chin for a scary effect and delighted in telling frightening, slow-moving stories that captivated imaginations and ended with screams! One time some of us followed the ghost story with a joke worthy of cinematic acclaim! We waited until the girls were asleep, then, with amazing stealth, we snuck in and put glitter on them followed by stomping on ketchup packets to look like blood was everywhere Let’s just say that the prank produced the intended results … and the trickster in me continues.”
