lives on mute

i hate meetings. i'm always having meetings. on the phone, in person, in a group, one on one... today, i had to take a conference call on the 5 freeway coming back from teaching. i had very little input for the meeting, so i muted myself. i had to drop off video equipment at the office and was able to a) listen on the conference call while b) talking to someone in the office about the equipment. i then realized that i could be dead cold under a truck and no one on the call would know (nor care? gasp!). i hate meetings. all talk, no action. if i just had those precious meeting minutes to finish my work rather than talk about it, then maybe i'd have more to talk about. but even still, i think i'd just send a postcard.
