Recently my brother, sister, and I talked for the first time about how we survived the meetings when we were kids. I loved hearing their stories.
I had a whole imaginary world I went into. Once the songs were over and the talk started, I would focus on the speaker to look like I was listening and then zone out. I never allowed myself to go into this imaginary world during regular time so I would have something to look forward to at the next meeting.
I discovered my brother did the same thing. He told me he did fun things like ride a dirt bike in his imaginary world.
My sister remembered trying to figure out ways to sleep though the meetings.
How about you guys? I bet there are some good stories out there.
