I did it, the scariest thing ever. I read my Madonna and Me essay last night in front of strangers. Public speaking is NOT something I enjoy, but I challenged myself with the notion that if I want to do this, be a writer, then this speaking in front of people thing may be in my future. So I dived in. I made it through and the crowd laughed at all the right places, so I think it went pretty well. At least I thought so until I saw this picture-are those two guys asleep? Wake up!!
