I trumped an opportunity to make a speech for a dear friend on friday. Yet Again. I always avoid speeches at going away parties, funerals, weddings etc. Its not that I have nothing to say - I'm just not a "on the spot" / "freestyle rapper" person like The Rock, Half Dollar or Harry Potter. Even though by the time I get home I would have thought up totally cool and funny stuff to say in a speech. A speech filled with euphemisms, white girl jokes, STDs and that time when we all got suspended for a week. Memories. But now its too late. The food is gone and the cake uncut. I could have even dropped in a comparison between You, Madonna and Louise Bennet. Or how I totally liked you more when I didn't have to work with you in the same office. It would have been a great speech, I can almost taste it like cheese on a pizza. Crap.

  1. i'm not much of an on-the-spot person either. i too, avoid being put on the spot around my peers. but around people i work with or work for, i do just fine. i can be on-the-spot when its about something i truely feel comfortable with, and thats usually my work, not my friends.

  2. At least you didn't irritate your friend and make a fool of yourself. Not all of us are golden-tonuged. It's good you know your strengths and weaknesses.

  4. Next time, before an event where you may be asked to speak, think about what you want to say. Then if you're asked, you're ready. Advice : Find a group near you...

  9. I said "liked more". Not unhate which isn't a word. But in fact achieving greater esteem. Yeah she's cool, totally. Stop over-analyzing. Your not going to get what your looking for.
