Calindae Knows Everything

Calindae knows everything She is the expert of all I sit next to her during meetings For there might be group work And I know she will grab the poster board And the markers and do it her way Such a relief Knowing I have to do nothing As she loves being the spokesperson also Others try to get next to her too, Sometimes there are a line of us. Luckily, I am aggressive and Not afraid to bare the teeth I have left This is the advantage of being in your sixties In a group of twenties and thirties who are easily frightened This last meeting was rather sweet. She yelled "I KNOW THESE! I KNOW THESE!" Grabbing the fill-in-the-blank form from all of us who did not care. No one else reached or glanced but she did not notice. She wrote large, with a flourish. When it came time to present everyone acted reluctant. So I yelled out "Calindae has the answers!" She gave me a look of love and began reading Loudly and proudly. "Sorry," the presenter said," You got one right. The rest are wrong." Calindae spent the rest of the time arguing with the presenter. Which means we did not have to fill out the survey Because we had run out of time. I will be racing to get this seat every week!

I hate to puff myself up, but Rhona, if you realized how many times stuff like this works in my favor just because I NOTICE these kinds of things in certain people, I doubt that you would be surprised as I see you doing this also.
