Ha, for the past 3 years I've missed every CO visit, then got pounded by the brothers when I said "he's just another brother". The CO visit is no different than a regular talk (except you have to sit on your bum for longer periods of time). I was never excited for it either.
What I love, though, is how everyone is on their best behavior when the CO comes. Everyone and their mother goes out in service as much as possible, literature which would have been a mess is now perfectly tidy, people who never commented are now commenting, elders are finally shepherding the flock like they're supposed to. And when he leaves? Everyone goes back to their normal routine. One brother once said "when the CO is here, I feel like a little child, I need to try to be good and perfect".
