Do you have a moment in time you wish you could do again only differently? I have one (OK, I admit I have more than one, in fact there are probably hundreds of them). There’s one though that Don won’t let me forget any time soon.
At TOPS we have officers and election of the officers once a year. The elected positions are Leader, Co-Leader, Secretary and Treasurer. The appointed positions are Weight Recorder and Assistant Weight Recorder. In another chapter BD (Before Dee) Don was a weight recorder. Well, we had our elections a few months ago and Don had mentioned he wouldn’t mind being weight recorder but didn’t want to be leader. We knew one of the women wanted to be secretary so he said he wouldn’t run for that position either. On election day someone nominated don to be co-leader and when it came time to cast my vote I reasoned since Don didn’t want to be leader that meant he didn’t want to be co-leader either. I guess him not turning down the nomination should have been my clue that I was WRONG. You guessed it, I voted for the woman who currently held that position. There were 3 running for that position and when the votes were tallied there was a 2 way tie between the existing co-leader and Don. It was just before the run-off that Don informed me he wouldn’t mind being co-leader so I voted for him. It was too late as he lost by 1, you guessed it ONE vote.
Now my first mistake was not voting for my husband the first time since he would have then won by 1 vote. My second mistake was telling him about my first mistake. I’m not sure which moment I’d like a do-over on though. Not voting for him or telling him I didn’t.
