There are many many things, were it my place, to complain about as regards the behavior of people at the meetings of the board in question. Excessive humor would not be among my gripes. The woman to whom I was listening concluded her remarks about the jokey fellow with this:
"Nobody minds a little brevity now and then, but when it's over, it's over."I didn't correct her, although I am quite sure, given the multiple-hour length of recent meetings, that she meant . . . levity.
It remains my own little private joke.
It delights me!
