With two days left until my sister’s wedding, she called me up and asked me to, “Give a speech. It’s not a big deal. Just talk for a minute or whatever.” But it is a big deal because I love her. Also, I’m still that crazy student who wants to do an awesome job so she stays up late the day the assignment is given, writing and perfecting it. This means it’s done waaaaaay too early, but there’s time for it to rest so I can go back and check/change/perfect it some more.
Not so in last-minute-speech-writing-hell.
I thought I’d been looked over since I’m already singing “Ave Maria” at the ceremony (practiced that at least–totally going to nail it!) To be honest, I could give a decent off-the-cuff speech, but I can’t have the best man outdoing me! I’ve seen maids/matrons of honor give awesome speeches, and their words are always heartfelt–just right for the couple. So here I go, reminiscing, writing, and hopefully kicking best man butt! Wish me luck.
P.S. What speech-giving experiences are tumbling in your dusty closet?? Show your bones below!
