Trying and failing

When we first came to Spain I thought I'd join a political party, then a couple of years later when my Spanish was perfect I'd get elected as a councillor.

Something went wrong somewhere but I did set out to my first meeting of the PSOE tonight. As I approached the door I was rehearsing my introduction, always interested in politics, member of the Labour Party in the UK, Union official, leaflet experience blah, blah. When I got there the chairperson welcomed me, "We're just off to eat, the meeting's over really, just the committee tonight, we haven't got this seasons meetings planned yet, come back in a couple of weeks time".

I retired.
