Actually, I could really use some sleep

16 Mar

Why is it that I took the minutes of the school council AGM about one year ago, but am only now, seven hours before the school secretary needs to photocopy them, typing them?

If you need me, I’m just here. Weeping into the vacuum of time which has passed but was never used.

    I often find myself in just that situation (the latter, not the former . . .)

    You have NO IDEA how hard I am laughing.


    Ask me what I do for a living …

    If I tried to type minutes from notes I’d made a year ago I’d have no hope at all trying to decipher my scribble and trying to remember what the heck was said so long ago.

    I do a lot of that.

    Eep! I meant that in reply to:

    Write for meaning, Helen!

    I hope you won’t hate me for this, TC, but the first two times I read that, I read ‘three minutes’. It’s a long time since I haz been secetary.

    And after all, you are super-parent for being secretary anyway. It will take your minutes to write theirs.

    Surely, after a year, you could just write (I just wrote ‘wright’! It’s 3a.m. and the boy is up for a play) anything at all. No one will remember…
    ‘The committee unanimously decided to hold donate income from the lamington drive to extend TC’s garret’.

    I love it when you nod sagely, Helen. Indeed it did, genevieve. Mikhela, that thought did cross my mind.

    I am no longer secretary.

    I promise not to volunteer you for secretary again..ever..

    Oh, that’s a good meeting. I hope you got a present for your services. Potplant? Flowers? as long as it’s not a bloody notepad.
    (Though in our lines of work, that can always be put to use I guess.)
