In a lighter vein

First, thanks to all the members who've contributed to this group's organizing fees.  You make things easier for me!

This month, let's focus on funny writing.  Let's read Mark Twain or Stephen Leacock or James Thurber or any of your favorite humorists!

As usual, if you want to read something off-topic or you'd rather just listen, that's OK with us.  And if you want to read your own writing, so much the better!

Butler's Pantry is in Mirvish Village, just southwest of Honest Ed's, near the Bathurst subway station.

    I am so sorry. I slept in, and cannot get there in time.
    Will want to come next time and bring fee, James.

      There's no strict fee. But if you contribute, say, $5.00 to pay Meetup expenses I'll be very grateful. (And you get to write your name on the sheet!)

    Since it is in a lighter vein, should I loose some weight in order to read, or should I try to be funny.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
