Table Topics are short, impromptu speeches. Tonight's topic was "Creative ways to end a relationship" but as I haven't done such a thing since 1984 and that wasn't very creative anyway, I didnb't win that one.
The humorous speech was the one I was keen to win, though with the busy life and the cough/cold recently, I haven't had so much time to prepare as I would have liked. In fact, I have had bearely any time to prepare it.
So, winning the club contest comes with mixed emotions. Obviously I'm pleased to have won, but it will result in a lot of work as I take what is frankly an underdeveloped and woefully underprepared speech and try to knock it into the shape of something that might stand a chance of winning an Area Contest.
And all this before October 5th. Of course, it's not that I have nothing else to do with my time. But for now, pleased to have won and getting ready for another night of sleep.
