I have always wanted to be part of a guild. Not a club or an association. I want to be a guild member. It just sounds so awesome.
A Guild is an association of craftsmen in a particular trade. I am not a craftsmen, nor am I skilled in any particular trade. This is a problem. What guild would have me?
There is then only one answer. I must create my own guild and become skilled enough to contribute to the guild in a meaningful way. A guild must also have members so please read my proposal and let me know if you would like join my guild. There will be t-shirts.
In honor of my Great Grandma Ostrom who went to be with her Creator yesterday, I hereby establish The Guild of Grandchildren. In keeping with modern times, all Guild Members will be referred to as “G’s”.
All members will be required to actively hone the skills handed down to them by their Grandparents so that said skills may be entrusted to the generations that follow.
Skills may include:
Culinary Preparation and Presentation
Future Guild Events May Include:
Summer Canning Festival
Doily Making Conference
Swedish Pancake Eating Competition (I am the current world champion of this event)
Apron Design Tutorial
How To Survive An Economic Downturn Utilizing the Art of Pickling Workshop
Elma Slug Festival – This festival includes a high stakes slug race. With some good
recruiting and training, I think our Guild sztands a chance to win.
Please be on the lookout for prospects.
I hope you decide to join the Guild. There will be buttons.
