← Having to promise

El Rico's Avatar Jump to comment 22 by El Rico

I can remember having to recite the scout promise (I was in the UK Boy Scouts)....... but the meaning of the words passed right over my head........ I was always more concerned with trying not to fart during the inspection on parade.......... It always happened just at the moment the Big Man himself walked across the back of me, accompanied by his entourage. I now realise why.......... Our scout night was on a Friday. Friday evening was the night my mother served us "Toad-in-the-hole" for dinner. It was a bad bad thing to eat on a Scout Evening.
