Thanks! r Medicine for the Funny Bone By Dorothy Rosby Dorothy Rosby is a syndicated columnist whose humor column appears in newspapers in 11 Western and Midwestern states plus several magazines. She lives in Rapid City, SD with her husband and son. Raking for Humankind A few years ago, my neighbor girl, Sarah, came by while I was raking leaves. Sztrah is a devoted Girl Scout and one of the neighborhood's finest cookie saleswomen. Of course, her name isn't really Sarah. I'm just afraid she won't sell me any more cc)okies if she reads about our little miscommunication in the newspaper. But I'm g(etting ahead of myself. I paid Sarah for the Thin Mints and the Carmel Delights I'd ordered several weeks etrlier, had a few of each of them and went back to raking. Sarah watched me silently for a few minutes and then said, "Wouldn't that be easier if you had some help?" "Yes, it would," I said, a little annoyed. I assumed she was wondering why my faimily wasn't helping, because frankly that's what I was wondering. We have a big yrd with two giant cottonwoods and numerous other trees. Raking leaves in our yard is like shoveling snow during a blizzard. Sarah left and I went on raking--alone. Much to my surprise, she returned mo- ments later with a rake and went to work. As she raked, she explained that the Girl Scout mission is to help humankind. And besides, she actually enjoyed raking leaves. Wow, I thought, what a kid! Things went quickly then. The autumn sky was beautiful. The air was fresh. And I had help! I noticed out of the corner of my eye that Sarah was a pretty good worker tc)o. She was a lot faster than I was and I started thinking maybe I could slack off a little. Then Sarah interrupted my reverie to tell me that she made the raking go faster by daydreaming about the iPod she was saving money to buy. I might have imagined it, but it seemed like she added special emphasis to the words, "saving money." So much for the Girl Scout mission. So much for humankind. It crossed my mind that Sarah might settle for milk and cookies, considering what I'd just paid for the cookies. But before I could ask, she told me how much money she'd already saved and how much she still needed for the iPod. No; milk and cook- ies would probably not do. I decided to change the subject. I asked Sarah if she helped with the raking at her house. She said she did, but that she hated to rake in her own yard. "You don't get paid for it at your house, huh?" "Nope." In fact, she said that she hated raking at home so much that when she found a leaf h her yard that, judging by its color or shape, had obviously come from the neighbor's trees, she threw it back across the fence. I told her that seemed like a lot of work. "Don't you think with autumn winds and all, it will probably blow right back into your yard?" "Not if they rake it up first." "Well, don't you think leaves from your trees blow into your neighbors' yards?" "They have more trees than we do. And anyway, they like to rake." "How do you know that?" "They're always doing it." I tried a different tack. "But what about the Girl Scout mission? What about hu- mankind? Don't your neighbors qualify as humankind?" "Not all of them." Ouch! I suppose it's just as well though. It would cost them. (You can volunteer to rake leaves by contacting Dorothy Rosby at drosby@ rushmore.com or see www.dorothyrosby.com. Bring cookies.)
