I have an unfortunate allergy to meetings.
About 3 minutes in, I develop a terrible symptom. I become very, very drowsy. This intense drowsiness is accompanied by complete disinterest, heavy eyelids, heavy limbs and the strong sensation that the blood in my veins has turned to mud. There is no other cure but to remove myself from the meeting, at which point, the symptom immediately disappears. If I don't remedy the situation, I only remember bits and pieces of the meeting. Snippets of sentences, the corner of a chart, the scuff on the speaker's shoe.
It's unfortunate, really, to be so allergic to meetings.
