March winds blew the Sicking siblings to Sybergs Bar & Grill for the 14th meeting of the DBC. Nancy and Elaine were the first to arrive followed shortly thereafter by some stranger who not only sat at their table, but acted as if she were well acquainted and belonged there. Nancy and Elaine exchanged sideways glances and tried to politely ignore this intruder while she continued to interject her opinions and freely set about joining in. Several uncomfortable minutes ticked by when suddenly it hit us and we realized this stranger was none other than our little sister Julie. Let the minutes now show that due to the length of David’s bathroom activities Julie didn’t have time to wear makeup rendering her completely unrecognizable upon arrival. Gratefully, Julie has since promised not to let David’s bowels interfere with her personal grooming habits for future DBC meetings.
Laura and Jen checked in at 7:10 with Jeannette in tow a few moments later. Mark W and She Who Must Not Be Named arrived by 7:23, but members were kept waiting until 8:55 for Matt. The meeting probably was called to order at some point, but there is no record of it, so its validity remains questionable.
Mgus and I am Teresa! who originally planned on attending were delayed by Marianne’s Ring Day ceremonies and consequently forgot to show up. It pains your seckitary to report that their lapse in good judgment set the tone for the entire evening and despite valiant efforts, the meeting was not what you would call “top drawer”. The high standards from which the Dodie & Bones Club was founded were not invoked, acknowledged or carried out. Mocking was held to a minimum, boisterous interruptions were few, and rudeness did not prevail. Still in all we were away from kids, homework and laundry and for that we were grateful.
Following is the inspirational message delivered at 9:56 p.m. by our very own Julie B:
"You know what would make a good story? Something about a clown who makes people happy, but inside he's real sad. Also, he has severe diarrhea."
Thank you, Julie
Topics of Discussion:
(As editor of these web-minutes I sometimes, like here, reach a quandary. Should I jump in when I see a possible mistake in Mme. Seckitary's minutes, knowing that the proper lyrics, in this case, are "I'm a lumberjack, and I'm okay. I sleep all night, and I work all day." Or is it possible that the intent was to inject humor by including misquotes or a pastiche. Or, perhaps even, Alane is poking fun at someone at the meeting who, sadly, did not know the correct lyrics to this famed ditty. But, what the heck, I am editor so I ought to get to jump in every once in a while if I feel like it. --Ed.)
(PS. When I sign these things "-- Ed." that stands for Editor which is the high falootin' name I give to my work as webmaster-doing-the-minutes-pages. Please don't ask who "Ed" is. There is no Ed. It's just me. -- Ed.)
(I feel like jumping in here, too. So I will. Even though I have nothing of import to impart. -- Ed)
(When was this?!! -- Matt - I mean "Ed.")
(Oh. My bad. -- Ed.)
(Yeah, like none of us have even seen Seinfeld. -- Ed.)
(I always thought that a waitress whose name was Matt could be called a "mattress". --Ed.)
(Editor's quandary here: Alane, I believe, meant to say "hoosiers" here. But maybe she meant to say "hoser". It's also remotely possible that she invented a nonce word "hosier" to cleverly invoke both concepts in one utterance. I'll assume the latter since it makes my little sister appear smart and creative. --Ed.)
The April meeting will be arranged by Elaine. Check website for date and location.
Your seckitary is tired of doing the minutes and wants someone else to take over. Will accept any offers
- Respectfully Submitted
(Given all the flack I received last month regarding whether Alane had spelled a word incorrectly, and definitely not wishing to experience such chastisement again, I would like to hereby proclaim that Alane had absolute no misspellings or grammatical errors in her minutes text this month. And when I say "absolutely no misspellings or grammatical errors" I mean that there was that thing about hoosier/hoser, and maybe six or seven others, but I'm way too much of a gentleman to even point them out. Anyway, who's counting?-- Ed)
