What if They Threw a Meeting and Everybody Else Came?

Oops! I forgot about the monthly meeting of the local writers' group on Thursday. I can't imagine how that slipped my mind, what with it being at 5:30 p.m. on the first day of school. Since the July meeting was canceled, I had stowed away the next date in the back of my mind. As NEXT Thursday.

I'm sure everybody will understand my inability to attend. You know. Everybody. The guy who runs the group and his family. The only ones who ever attended a meeting with me.

The Great Gazoo has been making me question myself. What if everyone showed up again when I was absent?

I will check the website for minutes of Thursday's meeting. Just in case.

A "family" writing group...Why didn't I think of that?

Oh, wait. I write BECAUSE of my family...

Well, you were justifiably detained. It wasn't your fault.

How WAS the first week of school? Getting your second wind yet?

Technically, the group has sixteen members. Thirteen which I have never seen. I'm not so keen on going back. Now that school has started, I value my evening respite.

You make it sound like those times I was pulled over for exceeding the ridiculous speed limit.

So far, so good. Two days under my belt. The tornado drill Friday kind of jacked up my knee bursitis while descending into the pits of the boys' locker room, then climbing back to the summit. No emotional damage, though.
