It never ceases to amaze me what a smooth talker I can be. When I hear words spill from my mouth, a mouth that seems to be completely connected to my brain, spouting words that are, as far as I’m aware, totally unplanned, even I’m impressed with myself.
Talking on the phone in my working day, fielding calls from the various folks who call us, answering questions from customers and occasionally being put on the spot HAS to be the ultimate Table Topics challenge. So why, oh WHY does my brain freeze over and I appear to be a total blithering idiot when called upon to answer a Table Topics question at a Toastmasters’ meeting? *sigh*
I have to tell myself at the next meeting “I CAN DO THIS!!”
