I didn’t make the switch to veganism until high school, but I was chocolate-covered as early as first grade. It was then that I became a Brownie. No, I don’t mean the fudgy confection you eat; I’m talking about the Girl Scouts’ group.I loved my time as a Brownie… and I know I’m not the only one who really enjoyed being a scout. Take my neighbor, Erik, for example. He liked being a scout so much that he stuck with the organization all the way from elementary school (as a Cub Scout) until age 18 (where he earned his Eagle Scout honor).
Earning one’s Eagle Scout status is a BIG deal. It involves organizing a service project (Erik painted the local community center), accumulating at least 21 merit badges, and standing before a review board.
To celebrate Erik’s accomplishment, his family threw him a huge party. And they hired me to make the cupcakes!
By the end of the party, there were quite a lot of bright blue tongues!
