I have a dilemma. My friend Chris *really* wants me to help with Girl Scouts this year. We wouldn't be leaders - thank god - but we'd help the woman who is. Here's my problem.

I can't stand the woman who runs it. Her daughter was on Alicia's softball team last year, and is a spoiled rotten little thing. One game, she didn't like where she was assigned and she proceeded to have a tantrum right there on the field. Threw down her glove and stormed off to the nearby playground, leaving the team in the lurch. The mother went after her and coddled her back. And then begged Charlie to let her play again. And honestly, the mom complains and whines as much as her daughter does. That apple did not fall far from that tree.

But...Alicia wants to join this year because Chris' daughter is a Girl Scout and so are a lot of her friends. Chris' daughter is one of Alicia's best buddies, and they've gotten even closer this summer. And I adore Chris. She's down-to-earth, has the same philosophy as I do in regards to parenting, and just makes me feel like I fit in, even when I don't. And she hates the woman who runs it as much as I do. Chris' one problem is that she just can't say no. So she's already agreed to help. She's trying to get me to help with her so that she's not alone, saying we can just ignore the leader, lol.

So what do I do? I really don't want to help. But part of me feels like I should, because I want to show Alicia I support what she's doing and it would be fun to hang out with Chris.
