We have an old, rather freaky old man who froths at the sides of his mouth come to our class once a week and induce pain and suffering for close to an hour. He is our effective speech teacher. And he is determine to whip us all into shape, since our previous teacher couldn't care less about us, but now he's back, the man who has known us since our (as he put it) "childhood days".

He was so happy to see us it frightened me. He missed us he says. He left us for like a year, and he misses us. Geez. And so he was eager to get right down to business, so, naturally, he picked his old favorites to give him ice breakers the next week. I'm one of those unlucky few. Blech.

So basically, he wants me to give the class a speech about myself, but it was to be different. Speeches about one's self are very hard to make unique. ><

"Hey, my name is NOT Julian."

"I am EXTREMELY quiet."

"I LOVE giving speeches."

"I HAVE REAL ambitions."

"Eating grated chicken bones is the BEST."

Sigh. The worst part is that if I do happen to deliver a good speech, I'll have to repeat it in front of the WHOLE SCHOOL. That's thousands of people hearing me blabber on and on about stupid, unimportant, and maybe even embarrassing facts about myself. And if I try to avoid doing the speech, he'll make me do an impromptu, or if I fake being sick, he'll insist that I need a note from my parents or the nurse. Both of the previously mentioned are HELL.

He'll also give the class this sob story about how we've all grown away from him and no longer care about an elderly teacher, while gazing at us tearfully. Just because we didn't do one effing speech. Stupid geezer really knows how to play with your conscience. So anyways, what do I do? How on earth can I make this speech different? I'm stumped.

You can make it different by making stuff up.

don't make it purely about yourself.
try like an aspect of you that makes you unique.

or take DatVu's advice.
Write a ridonkulous story about you and your pet flamethrower.
get a few laffs.

It went brilliantly, unfortunately. He actually gave me an "A", and now he wants me to go for some all island speech competition.

FOR PETE'S SAKE.

well, speech competitions aren't that bad. I do speech and debate, and it's just boring when you're waiting for your turn. Nothing to get worried about.

this hasn't been posted in, in a long time, shouldn't someone lock it?
if this counts as backseat moderating, I'll refrain from doing it again.
