Public Speaking Suggestion
Posted in Recommendations
Forenoon watch, 6 bells (11:10 am)

If you give a speech in public, don't start it out with "I didn't really prepare anything to say."

Even if you really didn't. People (like me) instantly lose focus and stop caring when you admit you didn't take the time to prepare.
