First Aid is Important

Overheard at 11-year-old Scout Patrol Meeting:

Assistant Scoutmaster: What would you do if someone has an eye injury? Like, say, someone has a piece of sand in their eye? What would you do?

Scout #1: It depends on who it is.

Assistant Scoutmaster: Let’s say Scout #2 has something in his eye. What would you do?

Scout #2: (screaming) AAAAHHHHH! MY EYE! (places hand over eye) AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! (falls off chair like he’s dying from a piece of sand in his eye)

Scout #3: (laughs hysterically)

Scout #1: If it’s Scout #2, I’d let him DIE. (laughing)

Scout #2: (screaming) AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! I’M GOING TO DIE!

Assistant Scoutmaster: Mmmm…ok. Sit up. For real, though… what if it’s someone you like? What would you do then?

Scout #2: (back in his chair, no longer screaming) Yea. What if it was GOD? What if GOD had something in his eye?

Scout #1: (looks like he’s thinking really hard)

…(silence)…

…(silence)…

Scout #1: (leans to the side and farts) Oh. That was a good one!

Scouts 1-3: (laughs hysterically)

Assistant Scoutmaster: Ok, let’s go run around in the gym for a while.

Scout #2: (running out of the room) Yay! I’m going to try and climb the stairs without using one of my legs!

Scout #1: (running out of the room) Ok! I’m going to try and do it without using BOTH of my legs!

    That is hilarious! I hope that I don't react like that if I ever get into an emergency situation…
