With Girl Scout Cookie season coming to an end, I thought I should pay tribute to the movie that inspired me to join the ranks over twenty years ago, Troop Beverly Hills. Needless to say, my six year old self was more than slightly disappointed that my local Brownie meetings, were nothing like the Wilderness Girls’ Beverly Hills chapter. Without spa treatments, Armani backpacks or overnight camp outs at the Beverly Hills Hotel and a weekly conflict with The Cosby Show, it’s no surprise that my experience as a Girl Scout only lasted a year but my love of Phyllis Neffler (and Thin Mints) has never wavered.
”I’m sorry we’re late, Your Honor. My troop and I were busy describing the fall fashions to the blind. One man said he could actually feel the colors. It was inspirational.”
“…And that’s why the American Indian is responsible for the turquoise jewelry movement.”
“It’s khaki wishes and cookie dreams!”
