Monday evening was upon me before I knew it, and time for Portland Toastmasters, club 31. Like Austin, members were quizzed at the end (for prizes) fun idea (but potato chips?) In addition to a moment of inspiration we enjoyed a “joke of the day.” An elegant elder Brit gave an elloquent (albeit meandering) speech on “Freedom” while another gave a terrific motivational speech on determination and perseverance. When asked to introduce myself I realized a moment or two of shyness, and I purposely neglected to mention the Bug (parked illegally outside.) I realize that sometimes I really enjoy the annonimity of not admitting she’s mine. Is that wrong?
