Next Year, We’ll Be Ready

Voting, originally uploaded by meganinmunich.

Who would have thought that so many seniors could sit for so many hours and consume so many beers with so few bathroom breaks.

But they did it and kicked our butts in the process.

We started at 9:30 on Saturday morning. At around one we finally got to discuss and vote on proposals.

It was brutal.

First they talked for a good hour about how to deal with the moles in spring time.

Then we debated replacing the front entry area door., (Wood! Aluminum! There are passionate opinions!)

Then they eyed with suspicion and then slaughtered the building-wide WiFi proposal. By the time it came to our bathing cap and splash hour proposals, only the mean old people were left. We put up a good fight – and almost got spit on – but in the end we had to concede.

But we took notes, uncovered weaknesses and internal alliances, and next year… oh next year, we will be more prepared.

Just watch.

(Note in the picture above the empty beer and wine glasses. This was before noon, just one of many, and so very necessary. Still there were 70-year olds drinking us under the table.)

  1. Wow, you are brave indeed to try to engage such an (apparently) curmudgeonly and alcoholic lot. No noise, no splashing? No fun! Good on you for trying to change their world.
