Did That Just Happen?

Have you ever had the sort of weekend where your first thought upon waking up on Sunday morning was:

“Did that just happen?”

If this question has ever occurred to you, then there’s a good chance that you were in attendance at the first annual District 96 Fall Conference.

I was, and as a result, the first thought that ‘sproinged’ straight into my brain when I woke up this Sunday morning was:

“Did that just happen?”

This thought was followed immediately by the next thought:

Memories, And Emcee Tips

I always answer local phone numbers. One day in June that number was District 96 Fall Conference Chair, Linda Lee, and she asked me to co-emcee the district 96 fall conference.  I’d be working with Dorothea Hendriks, whom I’d only heard speak once… and I loved her. I hung up the phone super excited, I turned to my girl, Jody Lea, and said,”Hey babe’s, I just got asked to co-emcee the fall conference.”

Jodes face turned crooked, “What, they don’t trust you to do it on your own??? OMG typical Toastmasters.”
