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.
