I agreed to what?

I am now giving my "Kohelet and K St." talk for our synogogue on the Second Day of Shavuous.


Why did I do this again? I don't even remember what I said. I never rememebr what I said unless I took notes.

And, of course, it cuts into prime nap time.

"Wheel of Kohelet, turn turn turn. Tell us the lesson that we must learn."
"Trip to Tahiti!"

I hate public speaking, except when I am actually doing it. No one believes this, but I have incredible stage fright right up until I start talking. Then, amazingly, it switches off. But I can never remember what I actually said. Don;t know if other people who do public speaking have this.

I am by this time convinced that I am an effective public speaker, because I have had lots of people tell me so. But that doesn't change anything.

Something new to stress about.
