I did my first Toastmaster's speech today, and it was recorded, so I watched it. Sure, I've been recorded before. Tons of times.
No, now that I think about it, not really very much. A bit here and there, some of the dancing, but not really much in the way of presentations.
As I watched I realized with growing astonishmen that I'm actually a pretty good speaker. At least this time I was. Funny, clear, charming. Adorable.
I don't think of myself as adorable. Me, adorable?
I watched it again, just to be sure. Yep, that woman there, talking about tango and love, she's - adorable. No two ways about it.
Me, adorable! Who would have thought?
