A Camp Counselor's Happiness And Misery Reminiscence V4.

Rating: 5.0

Happiness is kissing the camp mascot - Pierre.
Misery is trying to explain that Pierre has basset hound germs.
Misery is when Pierre won't let you into your cabin.
Happiness is a warm bed.
Misery is a cold morning shower.
Misery is wearing one slipper and one sneaker to breakfast.
Happiness is hot coffee in the morning.
Happiness is when all your campers arrive on time.
Misery is greeting your new campers in pajamas and combat boots.
Happiness is chasing a mink and calling it a gopher.

Happiness is seeing the deer in the orchard.

Touching. You painted a word picture of a young man I wish I had known then.
