A New Spin on Rotary
One of my responsibilities as President of the East Cooper Breakfast Rotary Club is High Priestess of Meetings. I run them, from the time a person walks through the door to sign in to the time they flee to the safety of their vehicles and go about their work days.
I endeavor to make them Entertaining.
I modulate my voice. I try not to play with my hands, a horrible, hideous tick that has existed since I gushed from my mother’s womb at one end of the forceps that were required to deliver the almost 10 pounds of me. I won’t mention what else I was doing when I made my grand appearance, as it is a decidedly not ladylike
At least, I was not Jim Carrey in “Dumb and Dumber.” I did not pop out with a lighter at my disposal.
So, I stand at the front of the room like I am armless, with my hands in a death grip behind my back. I come up with things for the membership to do that will hopefully build camaraderie and morale. I try to be perky. And up.
And, since I would sleep until 10am every day if I could, the fact that I do this at 7:30 every Tuesday morning is a Major Life Accomplishment. It proves that I have finally, miraculously matured.
One of the things I got MTM for Christmas, just so I could use it all the time, is a Zooka from Carbon Audio. It is a bluetooth enabled stereo speaker that will play music from any bluetooth device. My iPhone 5, as an example.
I started my iPhone playlist up at the Rotary meeting yesterday morning, to fill in the cavernous background air that accompanies people talking in a big room. At the time, I was standing between two members. My Zooka started playing a song from Cafe del Mar Volume 8, which is appropriate world music for Rotary, but it was met with mixed reviews from these two.
I. Need. Help.
I would like to create a soundtrack for my Rotary meetings. The only requirement is that the song somehow include an allusion to a circle, a wheel or something round. (Please, PLEASE click the links in the previous sentence before you reply to get a flavor of the proceedings.) I will write an entire blog post about the Rotarian reactions to this playlist, because I will include whatever qualifying song you post in a comment if it meets the stated requirements.
