Daily Diary: Wrapped Up In Toilet Paper

I volunteered this week at my daughter’s Girl Scouts troop meeting for some Halloween fun. Three teams of 4, the task was to mummify a parent as fast as you can. In the beginning, I wasn’t saying much… but then my competitive side took over and I started to let these little girls in on some strategy.

Needless to say, it was hilarious!!!!!

We came in second. The girls were bummed about it at first, but I had a great time watching them work together. They were stuffing toilet paper in my mouth and under my arms. CRACKING UP!
