Hey, Heifer! Once upon a time, I was a Girl Scout. As such, it was my duty to sell Girl Scout cookies. Selling did not come naturally to me yet every year I would drag my dad with me around the neighborhood trying to sell enough cookies to win whatever prize the head organization was offering. Later, I wrote a personal essay about the experience and today I am doing a dramatic reading of it! If you want to read the piece as well as see exclusive Brownie Elaine photos, head over to my Patreon. Enjoy!




00:00 My journey with the Girl Scouts of America and what led me to writing a series of essays about that part of my life lol.

7:57 The dramatic reading of Do-Si-Dos and Do-Si-Dont’s

13:05 The power of capitalism begins to change me.

15:03 One perk: snooping on my neighbors.

17:54 The demonic cookie costumes. 

20:15 The glorious beach towel victory.

20:37 Story debrief and overall thoughts on reviewing our past (very meta here since I’m looking at my childhood and myself from a few years ago when I wrote this story).

23:05 Thanks for listening! Lovies to my Patrons: KT & Oti, Vanessa, Rachel, Laura, and Taylor! <3
