The cheese bell rides again

Well, tonight was the club's humorous speech contest, along with the Table Topics contest.
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.
