Those who read my post of a few weeks ago may remember the trepidation I expressed at the prospect of giving a talk/presentation to a group of strangers. You kindly offered all manner of advice and encouragement and I considered every word. Included were recommendations to rely on whisky, cocaine, a six-pack of lager and bottle and a half of wine and yes, I have to say they were all….
….well, left untouched at home, of course. (Aargh, what am I saying?! We don’t have any lager at home…)
As for presenting it through the medium of modern dance, I knew my wild gesticulations would naturally interpret in a most balletic fashion the deeper issues that I wanted to cover.
Seriously, though, I really did appreciate all the kind motivational tips that came my way - and I know they helped me through Tuesday evening when the big moment arrived. So thank you. It’s a bit of a blur now, but afterwards I was on such a high I reckon the buzz pumping round my system would have had a significant street value.
It all went according to plan and I even got a few laughs. At least I think they were chuckling politely at my attempt at light humour and hopefully not at spaghetti hoop stains down my dress or something unsavoury-looking stuck between my front teeth…
Phew. I’m glad it’s over. But it was fun, and amazingly enough - I never thought I’d say this - I would do it again!
