It's a Fact

I have to come clean here and admit that I didn't write a speech for this one. I was in the process of putting together the final speech for the Entertaining Speaker series when life overtook and I was just too busy, so I cancelled my speech slot the week before. An hour before the meeting was due to begin, the Toastmaster for the evening, Simon, rang me to say there were only two speakers on the programme as four had cancelled. He begged me to do my speech and I refused. Then I felt awful for letting him down and, of course, my previous speech had been a searing attack on inactive members and last-minute cancellers, so I did a speech on the fly based on the premise that I've researched all my speeches, so I must have a fund of facts in my head.

I spoke about the facts behind my husband's lymphoma, my thyroid disorder, my son's dyslexia and my daughter's endometriosis and how we are statistically normal rather than unfortunate. I spoke about the depletion of nutrients in soil which has resulted in our food being less nutrient-rich than in the past and how important cis-fats are to our health.

It all passed in a blur, but it seemed to flow from my mouth without much halting and was well-received. I forgot to pick up my comment slips, which was such a nuisance as I really needed to know how everyone thought about this speech. Oh well!
