Is it ok to want to deck a cub scout? Just wondering. After a near-death, fire abudanza (ok - just some wavy flames) involoving some sugared up cub scouts and the redirection of a special needs child at the Blue and Gold Banquet - I quietly decided it was time to blow out the ceremonial candles on the stage. As I was probably saving children from a possibly harrowing experience, a more seasoned cub scout approached me and asked if I was supposed to blow those out. Hmmm. I don't know - how attached are you to your eyebrows? Instead, I replied quite politely with, "Yes, I'm afraid someone might get hurt." Looking at me straight into the depth of my soul, he replies quite confidently, "You didn't do it properly."
So repeat the first question of this paragraph to yourself again and decide for yourself.
