With tongue firmly planted in cheek, my colleague Mike sent me the following email this morning.
Nancy, Craig and I did have a very good meeting yesterday. We talked, discussed, chatted, spoke and uttered our needs. Then we lectured, informed, addressed, and sermoned on our desires. After that we mulled, pondered, considered, and contemplated on what we needed to prioritize. Then we all worked together to form a consensus that we understood, realized, and comprehended. We ended up with final plan that we all appreciated, grasped and recognized as a wonderful solution to big problems that were no longer any big deal. Pretty good meeting.
My blog buddy Frank Patrick has led his home blog page for years now with this quote:
It is a common delusion that you make things better by talking about them. - Dame Rose Macaulay
Mike captured this in humorous form. I hope you have a productive meeting today.
