It’s the annual Girl Scout cookie time. Troupe leaders are coming on the news to explain that selling cookies is a character-building exercise that teaches young girls how to interact socially. I never got past the Brownies since I hated outdoor camping so have never sold a single cookie. My character, for good or worse, got built without going door-to-door making a damn nuisance of myself. As for learning how to interact socially, that’s still a challenge that no amount of cookies will help.
