Have you ever tried Green Eggs and Ham? Dr Seuss would urge you to try it, advocate that he was for trying new and scary things. The same could be said for Toastmasters, but don’t worry, our Thursday meeting wasn’t scary at all. Just great fellowship and learning.
Our Toastmaster Chandler led us in the theme of Dr. Seuss, which took us back to our childhood and reminded us of characters such as the Cat in the Hat, The Lorax and Horton the Elephant.
Our Grammarian, Maria, presented the word of the day, egregious, which gave us all a healthy opportunity to kvetch a little bit.
Table Topics, led by Tim S, was a festival of Dr Seuss references and teed up questions that kept our dear respondents quick on their feet. Lynn took top prize in Table Topics for her mouthwatering description of the best breakfast other than green eggs and ham.
In the prepared speeches, Rene made us laugh as he recounted all the times in his life he accidentally started fires, Mark S brought us up to speed on how to use your leadership style to be a better coach, and Karen gave us a touching tribute to her mother.
We’re sad to see this meeting end but as Seuss himself said, “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened”. See you next week, Voyagers, enjoy your week, and think and wonder, wonder and think!
