After The Speech - Morning Tea

I was good, someone said, I easily broke the ice with everyone, someone said.

I've done my speech, I've done my say in the speeches, now here comes the hard part. This is the full story behind the little video that was posted earlier today.

Dang it, I spilled water on myself. I was trying to crush the cup, and if I can describe it perfectly, the cup was crushed, and I turned it upside down...there was still water in it, then SPLISH....

Ms Grant had told us all about what we would be doing later on, and after a few speeches from a couple of teachers, and ONE of them, was Ms Kyla!

The ambassadors were talking with each other, about our speeches. Bradley had told me my speech was great, and asked me how I did what I did. I was honest, as always, saying that when people laugh with you, you can become more comfortable with the crowd, you can connect with them.

That wasn't exactly what I said, but as always, it's almost close!

The coffee was worth it, by the way. Sure, it was as hot as a piper...sure, it might have literally burnt a part of my tongue off, but it was worth it. Outside I was going, "Oh, yes, I concur, great coffee, yes...", and on the inside I was goin-
