Writing is like being able to put life into a snow globe. It takes the things that are too big and scary and reduces them into a form that I can put away when I want and look at from a distance. It also takes all that’s good in life and captures it into something I can take out when I want and look at close up and keep forever. It makes the bad things into something I can hold…and the good things into something I can hold onto. Both help so much that I need that little souvenir of life.

Just When You Thought You Were Safe from Brownies

A couple of weeks ago, I posted about Ruth and her work on the Brownie’s Pyrotechnics Badge. Sad to say, that one has been discontinued along with

10 Other Rejected Brownie Badges
  1. Feeling Good About Me Thanks to Cosmetic Surgery
  2. Fun with Neurotoxins
  3. Land Mine Mazes
  4. I Was Born to Procreate
  5. First Aid Emergency Heart Surgery
  6. Safety First Nuclear Waste Disposal
  7. Sewage and Singalong
  8. Beginner Pole Dancing
  9. Funeral Direction Fun
  10. Let’s Put the “U” in Urology

Take me or leave me; accept me or walk away; love me or hate me…but don’t make me feel less of a person if I don’t fit your idea of who I should be. I am me and I love me as I am! ~ Rishu Rajput

    Crikey, that's harsh.... glad I got my Sewerage and Singalong badge many a long song past... YAM xx

  2. I am wondering if one had to earn the First Aid Emergency Heart Surgery before the Funeral Director Fun badge...

    1. I bet one did indeed spark the idea for the other.

  3. I'm thinking these aren't too far fetched considering some curriculum models. You amaze me with your ability to come up with this.

  4. Those are definitely Senior Scout badges.

    1. Oh, thank you. You guys really make me laugh.

  5. Still laughing, dear Tammy! And I agree with Linda. These days, you never know what you might see.

    1. I never thought about it, but I guess you're right. Thanks, Ters!

  6. These are hilarious too! And that quote, I just love.

  7. Thanks, Lynn! Isn't that a wonderful quote? I saw it on Facebook.
