The Perfect Meeting

At only eight months sober, I had been elected secretary of my home group, a most important and noteworthy position. It's important, for it is really the secretary's meeting--he or she does all the work to keep it going and interesting. To top things off, I had, all on my own mind you, managed to obtain a most popular speaker. I had already chosen a super topic, and was sure they were all going to say, "Thanks, Gregoire. Thanks to you this is a truly great meeting."

"My" meeting started off fine, on time, like it should, in the church basement. I sure was proud of myself.
