Toastmaster: Michael O
This week’s meeting was full of surprises, including a special many Table Topic speeches including tattoos – and not the visual kind.
Robyne spoke from the Entertaining Speaker manual. Her speech humorous, “Ruthless and Unscrupulous,” was the Make Them Laugh project in the manual. Robyne recounts an incident with her daughter’s perception of a middle-aged biker. She also treated us to the particularly humorous imagery of an incident at her work.
From the Competent Communicator manual, project 6 on vocal variety, Andy’s speech is entitled “Traditions.” He asked us to think about our own traditions and relayed some of his own, such as the Intestinator. We all have traditions, even if some of those around us do not share them to the same extent. Andy implored us to cherish our traditions and always remember: Colton is the man.
Michael took on table topics in lieu of a missing working member. Through his questions, we found that one of the biggest surprises Colton experienced was adopting a child. Gary was surprised with the way his retirement was announced to his boss and he would rather give surprises than receive.
