Last week there was a question about whether one of our speakers would be speaking this week. I volunteered to take her place and give my first speech, but then toward the end of the week it looked like she was back on, so I didn’t work on what I had written at all. Well, at the eleventh hour today, it was determined that I would speak after all! I made some quick edits and practiced all the way home from work, in front of the cat, and then all the way to the meeting. And guess what?
Taking a chance paid off! Except my speech was about being an introvert, and now the other members don’t believe I am one. I told them I only ‘turn it on’ for interviews and presentations!
Confession: I sort of bribed the jury.
I didn’t really do this to bribe the jury — I didn’t even think I would be speaking when I made these! The truth is that I went a little crazy in the Halloween/baking section at Michael’s last month, which pretty much meant I would be baking a whole lot of cupcakes and mini-cupcakes for Halloween. Tomorrow night I will frost the ones that I’m dropping off at the kennel on Thursday. The staff there is awesome and I like to treat them once in a while.
Who is on your ‘treat’ list this year? What about tricks?
