I’m taking a vacation day today, trying to burn down the nine days I have left. Ugh, this is the crime of the modern American workplace. Three weeks becomes too much to take in a year.
At least I’m trying to spend it writing — actually trying to prepare for this evening’s speech contest with my Toastmasters club. I figure I’m at an advantage with my storytelling experience, but looking at my list of stories, I only have one story with two funny checkmarks on my patent-pending “Funny Scale.”
Shown: Not much funny
I’ll go with “The Letter” story, which I think is the strongest one anyway. I just have to actually sit down now and add 20% more funny. Stay tuned…
