House meeting agenda item
"What's this agenda item about some bike-packers coming to visit?"
"Well, only if we want them to. I met them at Make Faire. They're a cute couple, Ryan and Mandy, who are traveling about, making a documentary about sustainability, community living, simpler choices, that sort of thing. I promised I'd ask all of you if they could come visit."
"Is there some issue?"
"I certainly don't think so. I love getting filmed and interviewed-"
"Me too!" "So do I!"
"-but since they'll be sharing the shower, at the very least, and probably the kitchen too, I felt like I better get all of our input."
"Do we have room for them? Our veggie-oil bus fills quite a bit of driveway."
"Oh, they're on bicycles-"
"Ha! HA! Let's keep inviting more and more people, as long as their transportation fits in the remaining space on the driveway!"
"If I don't feel like being filmed, I'll just hide in my room."
"I'm sure we can work out the shower arrangement."
"How long will they be here for?"
"Overnight? A day or two?"
"Oh, well, then of course they can come over!"
