Today, we have to give five minute demonstrative speeches for our class. I used to be a member of Toast Masters International, so I’m fine with giving a speech. However, we’ve got one of the school’s big shots trying to sit in on our speeches today. She smiles at us whenever she comes across us, but she’ll tell our teacher to dock us points for attendance (we left like ten minutes early, big whoop), and not to give us 100% on our speeches, because it’s impossible for somebody to do that good a job apparently. I declare!
I’ll have you know, madam, that I am a very good speaker (if I like what I’m yapping about). Our teacher told us that she said not to give us 100%, we were all affronted, and started planning like little minions. One girl actually thought we were supposed to have our speeches yesterday, so she had all her supplies. She gave it already, but the rest of us are going to have to give ours today. This executive doesn’t know when we’re giving these speeches; just that we’re supposed to do them today. We’re all evil; we want to sneak them in before she arrives at the school. That way, when she does stick her head into our classroom, our teacher can tell her we’re already done.
Sorry, lady. But when you try to tell a teacher to take points off for things, and not to give 100% scores, even though they are rightfully earned, is pathetic. Thanks, but no thanks! And I fully intend to wow people today with my speaking. Like I said, I’m a chatter box if it’s something I enjoy.
And on that note, it’s been real!
