What can I say, she does.
What is the meaning of the word "meeting", anyway?
According to dictionary.com, meeting simply means:
noun. the act of coming together: a chance meeting in the park. an assembly or conference of persons for a specific purpose: a ten o'clock business meeting. the body of persons present at an assembly or conference: to read a report to the meeting. a hostile encounter; duel.
Ah, it just dawned on her of why.
Mimi thought a family meeting is always a wonderful gathering or coming together to discuss family matters.
Each time the head of the family calls for a meeting, there is always a hidden agenda behind it.
Each time they'd get together for a meeting, something bad is always dropped, leaving her feeling helpless and unwanted.
That's why Mimi hates the word "MEETING".
To her, it embodies a negative encounter, one which is clearly stated in abovementioned dictionary.com., "a hostile encounter; duel"
So please guys, excuse Mimi if she avoids family meetings at all costs.
