Every year, Bub's birthday passes by right in the middle of Scout camp. On this particular birthday, some of the other boys decided to lock him in the port-a-joh (portable outhouse). This was, of course, not exactly the best of presents. His brother, Sticky, tried his best to dissuade the tormenters. When the mischievious deed had been done, Sticky attempted, albeit unsuccessfully, to unlock the john immediately.
In this predicament, Bub had choices. It didn't take him long to decide upon a course of action. He promptly retrieved his harmonica from his side pocket and began playing a lively tune! This unusual response prompted laughter from his captors. As they chuckled, they let him out of his prison.
Lesson learned: This was an awesome example to me of the well-known advice, "When life hands you lemons...make lemonade." I wish I could be as positive in my attitude and as quick in my thinking as is Bub. What a cool kid. :)
