So guess what everyone?! I'm going to be speaking here......
I'm a little nervous....alright fine.... I'm A LOT nervous....Like, run away to Joppa with Jonah nervous!!
-Rabbit trail -
Did I ever tell you about the time when I was registering for my college classes, and found out I had to take speech class? I asked my advisor, "Sooooo, ummm, like, do you offer any majors that would not require me taking a speech class?" I stood there nervously wringing my hands. The advisor stopped writing and stared at me blankly, "Only the two year secretarial program."
"Sold! Sign me up....I like typewriters."
I can't tell you how bad I want to say "just kidding" after that last story, but I'm afraid it's the dead honest truth. According to Wikipedia, I have Glossophobia - fear of public speaking. The word glossophobia comes from the Greek word, blah-blah-glossa-something or other, meaning "tongue and fear or dread." That! my dear Wikipedian friends, is a massive understatement! Allow me to offer my own definition...
"Glossophobia - you know you've got it when, three nights in the belly of a whale looks like a five star hotel."
I'll be in Greenville, SC at the TD Center on Friday, March 21st. The session starts at 8:30 am
(Bring me coffee!)
