Yes. I'm still here. The talk went pretty well. I did some nervous fast talking, and probably covered things a little too quickly, but my handout was pretty thorough. I didn't break out into hives or anything, but I was sweating a whole bunch. Instead of Sweating to the Oldies it was Sweating to the Karate Talk.
I was half tempted to play Kung-Fu Fighting as my intro. Loosen up the crowd, so to speak. There were pretty many people there. And I think I threw up a little in my mouth when they had to add an extra table to have enough seats.
I realized later that I got started too early, and Misty didn't introduce me. She even asked how I wanted to be introduced, but I was just too anxious to get it over with. So, oops. Sorry Misty! I had talked to most of the new people who'd come to the meeting. There were five.
Dan, my surprise assistant, was a very good sport. He's a bit of a wild card, and I was a little nervous that he'd run away with the show because he has such an outgoing personality, but he was great.
So all in all, I didn't vomit on anyone, so I'm calling it a success.
In the wild
