When an eighty-something-year-old, 100-pound-woman leans across the table, looks at you earnestly and asks you to be a member of the board, what do you say?

Well, if you're me, you say yes, apparently.

I went to cover the local homeless shelter board meeting. Two hours later I'm a member of the board. I'm slightly confused too.

In what was probably the most informal board meeting I've ever covered (obviously!), I was asked by the treasurer to be a member and when I said how I would like to help as much as I could, she leaned over to the secretary and said, "No one else heard it but I just asked Holly to be a member of the board and she said yes. Sherry, write her name down. She's a member of the board."

There you have it.
