The View from 2112: Press Rep Kim Looks Back From the Future


I walked to the door as I heard a few whispers from behind my old and rickety door. "Hi ma'am! My little girl is a Girl Scout and she said that she had heard you were a Girl Scout. And wanted to see if you would tell her a story of back then?" asked the woman.

I welcomed them into my home and walked them through the house to the old living room. I called my old Model-X and ordered both of them green tea. The little girl looked up at me with huge eyes as I sat back and she grabbed a pen and paper. "We used to not have to sit down and listen for 3 seconds then go back we would stay for hours at a time listening to my mother. Telling us all about how to run our own businesses and everything!" I said.

I watched as the girl set the pen up right and it started writing every word I said.  As I tell this little Girl Scout about my experiences 100 years ago at the Girl Scout Rock the Mall centennial celebration, I think about how different things are in 2112. It was amazing that I never thought that 100 years from 2012 that we would have robots, and pills (and Girl Scout cookie pills!) that people would take to have all of their daily nutrition.  Girl Scouts go to museums to see obsolete iPhones and Blu-rays. Thanks to rockets they take field trips in seconds to Pluto's Fantastic Amusement Park, which is actually on Pluto! And even other galaxies in minutes. There are Girl Scout troops on Neptune, and WAGGGS had to change its name to GAGGGS-Galactic Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts in 2024. The new uniforms are sequined jumpsuits and hoop skirts. They can talk with Girl Scouts in other countries and planets thanks to "Anna Pens", brain implants that let you hear and speak other languages.

The Girl Scout's mother thanked me for sharing my knowledge, but they had to hurry off. After they left, I pondered on where Girl Scouts will be in 2212...
