Off on a field trip!

It's not often that I get to take a group on a "field trip," but today is the day!

I'm in Bus No. 16, it barely has more than 1,000 miles on it, and you can definitely still smell the newness, which is a much better smell than the boy's bus after a Friday-night football game.

Anyways, I have a busload of girls (color guard at a competition), and everything smells fresh and new and perfumey. But let me tell you, girls can talk -- and I ain't talking all pretty and sweet stuff.

It's one thing to be in a busload of guys who are talking about guy stuff, but it's a completely different matter to be the only guy in a busload of girls, who have no problem talking girl stuff. And I mean everything from their hair, periods, tampons, what guy has the nicest butt, and a whole lot of other stuff I'd soon as not talk about.

We pulled up alongside a male soccer team, standing on a curb, holding up signs for a car-wash fundraiser. The guys were all waving at the girls. And do you know what those girls had to say? "None of them are cute."

If I had been in on a guy bus, and we'd stopped by a group of girls promoting a fundraiser, I guarantee those guys would have found at least one girl to go gaga over, and probably more. I think these girls are a bit too picky.

Anyways, that's what I'm up to today. Sitting, waiting, and hoping those ladies are too tired to talk non-stop on the way home.

I'll let you know how it all comes out!
