Motion To Adjourn

I had a controversial committee meeting tonight. Here's a newsflash, I didn't want to go. I keeping getting the agenda emailed to me and thinking maybe this time there will be new and exciting items to discuss ...

Instead it's the same old business. Beating. A. Dead. Horse.

I went anyway. I just sat there. Making my grocery list. Doodling on the agenda. Trying to not fidget. I forgot my water, I had no gum or chapstick. My eyelids were heavy a few times.

At the end (think 2 hours long), the guy running the meeting, asked me if I had anything to say.

I said nope. He said "Not even on the comment I just made?", which was about a group of kids that hang out in the center of town. I just shook my head. smiled and said ...

"Motion to adjourn?" What I really was thinking ... Get me out of here.
