I was always curious to see what went on during those meetings. Well I got my chance to sit in on one yesterday. I no longer envy momma going to the meetings of the Bored. I pass. Wait I took notes, so you can see for yourself why I have no interest in ever going with momma.
Blah blah kiss hello, hug blah blah smiles. Hand shakes. [such a human thing to do...like you can tell anything from that!
Blah blah sit, pour water sip sip, blah blah paper shuffle paper shuffle, paper shuffle big pink paper labeled AGENDA.
Quiet for a minute. Everybody reads AGENDA.
[I never even knew you can name papers, I would name mine ASTRID, it is way prettier than AGENDA which really sounds old.]
The the real talking started, blah blah blah, cough, cough mint candy, blah blah blah.
Get this ritual, I had never seen this, it was actually fascinating. They do this thing they call a "show of hands". I know, right? And they only show the one hand by holding it up.
And not everyone did it. I heard a couple of the Bored members talking to each other, one said that the guy who did not show his hands is a real PITA. He did not look like bread to me. Chalk it to up to weird humans.
Oh yes, there was lots of talk about momma moving and having to appoint new a new Bored member. Good luck. I mean why does anyone want to be a member of the Bored? I can think of a biziollion things that are more fun!
More talk, blah blah blah, another show of hands [really one hand] then more AGENDA shuffling, and they "tabled: a discussion". What can I say, I must have zoned out because I did not see what this "tabled discussion" looked like.
So, I maybe took a little nap. Can you blame me? Do you think they call it a meeting of the Bored for nothing??? Boredom is really what they do. And for this I got brushed... WOW.
At some point they called it. The PITA actually said " I am calling this meeting". You know, just like House calls time of death when one of his make believe patient is a gonner, the PITA, called the meeting ADJOURNED. They all got up, shook hands and were happy to have gotten so much done. ?????? What did they DO???? What did I miss???? The whole experience was underwhelming to say the least...
Dowi, when you "take in a meetings" is it like a meeting of the Bored? UGH.... Adam I know you go to meetings of the Bored, do you have to show your hand??? Can you paint a puppet on your hands and spice things up?
I don't know. I thought with thumbs and all, two leggeds lived a more exciting life... Nop... and BTW noooooo foood, just water.... When we get together at TBFR, there is ALWAYS food. It is always a CELEBRATION... this felt more like a funeral.
Momma, if you go to any more of these meetings of the Bored, count me out. I can be way happier at home.
