Finish the Story Minute
This Minute is meant for Boy Scouts.
Once upon a time, a man lived in a small town where there was no Boy Scout organization. It was a very small town. This man had a son who did well in school but was pretty shy.
One day, when the boy was just starting 6th grade, the man got a job in another town - it happened to be our town right here. So, his family moved and found a nice house in the neighborhood right next to where our troop meets.
Not long after they moved in, this boy saw our troop outside playing a game during one of our meetings. He watched from his backyard, being the shy kind of kid he was.
But, he wasn't dumb. He found out when our next meeting would be and just happened to be sitting on the curb out by the front door before our meeting.
And, there he sat, bouncing a ball and waiting. Then, a car pulled up and a scout got out, heading to our meeting.
That Scout was you. And, you'll have to finish the story in your head. Is that boy still sitting out there or not?
And, one other thing to think about - that boy may not be sitting on the curb out front. He might be sitting in the desk behind you at school or in the seat ahead of you on the bus or playing the trumpet next to you in band.
