God I hope this means that someone took a reservation for November 31st. That would make me happy beyond reason.

The reason why I’m posting the local weather details is because you need to know this as background information so that you understand how I felt when one of the tenants called to complain that his air conditioner wasn’t working.

AA meeting notes 10/19/14
  • Our secretary today is nattily attired, sporting a blazer and an electric blue tie adorned with images of Winnie the Pooh and Tigger.

  • The person who gave the lead/talk at the very first meeting I ever attended is here. On that day, this person talked for almost an hour and a half. His life story included drinking himself homeless, and living under a bridge and detailed descriptions of soiling himself. Listening to him was one of the most tedious undertakings of my life, and it almost derailed me. If he stands up to talk today, I am walking out.

  • "Half measures availed us nothing." Amidst the tired rhetoric and cliche of most meetings, this one phrase from the big book jolts like a shot of electric poetry. It’s like someone threw in a Patti Smith song in the middle of a Taylor Swift mixtape. It’s a humbling and terrifying thought, as I would classify large chunks of my life as having been half measures.

  • The person actually giving the lead today mentioned an extended military stint in Europe. I, too, have thrown up in Europe.

  • Many people with shaking hands trying to delicately sip coffee.

  • One woman in a black dress, wearing pearls, and hair that was probably dazzling last night. It’s like she just walked in here straight from an all-night party. By far the most glamorous person in the room. She took a sip from her soda, and because the straw was black, it looked for a second like she had a fancy black cigarette holder.

  • I admit that I am afraid of people with neck tattoos.

  • There are 4 plaques on the wall with single words emblazoned on them. Honesty. Unselfishness. Love. Purity. It makes me wonder why they didn’t pick a second word that starts with “E” so that they could have an acronym. I tried to think of a good E word to substitute for Unselfishness, but I came up with Elfishness, and decided it was perfect and I didn’t need to think about it anymore. HELP - honesty, elfishness, love & purity.

  • God is mentioned in 5 of the 12 steps. Plus, we say the Lord’s Prayer and the Serenity Prayer. This is most likely going to be the reason I eventually stop coming to meetings. I just don’t believe.

  • At the end of the lead, people have a few minutes to stand up and comment on what they’ve just heard. Most people say variations of, “I’d like to thank you for your message today. You really touched me” etc. But today, a man stood up and said, “I love you, Dw****. I love you because you loved my mother-in-law. I loved my mother-in-law. My mother-in-law was my friend before she was my mother-in-law. She used to bring me spaghetti. Sometimes she brought me spaghetti on Tuesday. Other times, she brought me spaghetti on Saturday.” Honestly, I couldn’t make eye contact with anyone at that moment for fear I’d bark out laughing.

  • And then I remembered how when I first went in to recovery, the doctor who was interviewing me and assessing me asked out of the clear blue, “Have you ever made a suicide plan that didn’t involve a gun?” and I still feel that pulse of black shock.
