MORNING MEETING (any gender- early teens on up)
How many minutes before the campers gather in the dining ha- FIVE?! Aw JACK, you gotta prep these things... the morning meeting, it’s the only! Way! To start! The day! Off! right! How can you not-
But, right, right, right, OKAY I’m here to help you, I’m the idea person. You know I’m your idea person: So: How about we talk about those weird BUGS or whatever that seem to be biting the kids, cause it’s like all about NATURE, right? And nature is changing, we think technology changes but NATURE is changing too, I mean-- OO! OO! JACK- maybe we could NAME THE BUGS AS A CAMP we make it a game, I’m SERIOUS, ‘cause we may be the FIRST CAMP that’s ever had these mutant bugs and JACK, just think, the Science of Congress or whatever-it-is, they could make it the OFFICIAL name, and OHHHHH you smirk all you want but they give all kinds of stupid names for things, I mean like that APE GIRL they dug up-- LUCY??? That’s some bulllllllSHIT. We can do better than LUCY. And you ARE going to get rid of those bugs, aren’t you Jack? ‘Cause we don’t really know what’s going to happen to the kids who got bit-- OKAY, okaaayyy I’m just saying, I’m just SAYING.
How much time we got, now?
