Lenore Skenazy discusses men and girl scout cookies . . .

Man Asks Girls of Girl Scout Age, in Girl Scout Cookie Selling Season, If They Are Selling Girl Scout Cookies. Police Are Alerted.

My comment . . . I could be in real trouble, as I am a single male and I also believe in, when possible, donating to occasional causes with $4 or so (the cost of a girl scout cookie box in our area). We had girl scouts selling cookies on many weekend days for about a month recently in a certain Washington state suburb. (The local police chief knows me slightly from an occasional congratulatory or supportive email from me to him, but his officers don’t know me by face. I don’t cause enough trouble to bring me to the attention of the patrol officers.) If I can find an extra $4 to give/buy/donate, I try to take a box . . . from the “girls” and young ladies in front of the grocery store . . .

recent girls selling cookies stories, March 05, 2016

This morning I was creating some “categories” for this WordPress site . . . and I realized that over the weekend I had encountered or seen about 8 girls in various places selling cookies of various types.  Some of the girls were selling girl scout cookies and some were selling cookies that were certainly homemade, being sold at Greenlake.

Your photo here?

Marty McFly, a high school age kid  whose future is nearly erased after a nocturnal visit with a certain mad scientist. Of course, the principal of school might advise some kids against meeting strange men at the mall  at 1:15 at night.  School principals are not always adventurous. Also, Public Notice: the SPD, other agencies and the sheriff prefer that you abstain from time travel adventuring that would make it difficult to locate you.   They may be able to live with your visiting Greenlake . . . especially if you do so without hacking the email accounts of school staff or any school girls . . . They may overlook some visits to Emerald Cups if you think you are old enough and if Emerald desk staff is not concerned about you.

Your photo or the photo of a friend here, in bikini or swimwear or short skirt, or as a cheerleader or drill team member, or in glamour photography . . .

Of course, there are some of you who might say, “My photo could be somewhere, but not on David’s website!”  None of that Back to the Future stuff my mom warned me about!  OK . . . then . . . you or your friends could build a website, using WordPress and the “Love it” plugin.  Some of you might be doing some website design or have friends who do . . . or you might email someone who knows.

On the other hand, if and when you take a field trip to Seattle and if and when you visit Greenlake in the summer, there might be so many s, s, s*x d*v**t*s at Greenlake, that one of them might take your photo, without your permission!  (Uh, oh!  Call 911!)  You might be on the site without going Back to the Future!

Of course, the police would always come to stop people taking photos at Greenlake but unfortunately–hey!–they can’t be everywhere at once . . . In North Seattle, in recent years, an occasional police response time to a report of burglary was one to three hours.

The Seattle PD was in the news again this week after several concerned citizens called them about a drunk driver who had been involved in an accident.  The residents felt it would be a bad idea for the drunk to drive off without first being checked by a policeperson.  They called and they waited and for four hours no SPD patrol came to see the drunk driver by the side of the road.  The North Seattle precinct leader explains that the call came in on a day on which several patrol officers were sick and because the cars were out of the roadway, it was considered a low priority.

Eventually, one of the concerned residents called the state patrol, who came and arrested the drunk driving fellow.

No, I am not saying that the police will or will not visit with you promptly, if and when you are at Greenlake and being cute . . . but there is no need to burden them with things that may not be necessary!  They kind of like not getting 911 calls unless there is an actual crime to check on.

Doc: My equipment, that reminds me, Marty, you better not hook up to the amplifier. There's a slight possibility for overload.

Marty McFly: Yeah, I'll keep that in mind.

Doc: Good, I'll see you tonight. Don't forget, now, 1:15 a.m., Twin Pines Mall.

Marty McFly: Right.
