By now, in this crazy world, we all know and understand that it’s best not to read, listen to or follow much of the news. What to believe? Who to believe? It’s a little like hanging out with Rosemary’s Baby or the Exorcist.
There are times, of course, when we can’t avoid situations that make us stop in our tracks and ask: “Whoa! What just happened there?”
During this last year, I have often recalled the following bit of dialogue to help me through the crazies. While head-spinning in itself, it at least brings laughter.
The year was probably 2000. I was part of a group of women and the new board was assuming its role.
At its first meeting, the Incoming Chairwoman (ICW) asked the Outgoing Chairwoman (OCW) if she had a list of the group’s members.
OCW said she did indeed have such a list.
ICW asked OCW if she would fax her that list.
OCW said she didn’t have a fax machine.
ICW said neither did she.
I rest my case.
