I went to the awards ceremony last night to get my award certificate. I'm still not sure what it is for. The ceremony itself was clearly a chance for politicians to get some face time. After the speeches the MC started to wrap up the meeting and had to be reminded that the point of us being there was to hand out 90 awards.
The two hour awards ceremony started fifteen minutes late, ran 45 minutes and ended. Then the award certificates were handed out en masse and in confusion while the area around the refreshment table became non-navigable. I probably could have scored a piece of cake but the sandwich trays could not even be seen from my closest vantage. I suppose I could have gone up to the balcony and peered down to see them. What point? I left with my certificate with my name misspelled. wee.
June 2017 is my 60th birthday. Where did the time go?
