Speaking with connectors

October 27, 2006

While listening to On Point this evening, I set a goal: speak more fluidly in public than Barak Obama.  He seems like a nice guy, and should he run for President of the United States, he’ll be someone to consider.  But in the ten minutes I heard him answering callers’ questions, he used so many connector/filler words, like “uh,” “so,” and “and.” I’m sure he’s better at prepared speeches.

Perhaps I should have set my public speaking goals higher?

Witness a sailboat that doubles as a pumpkin

Find the pumpkin, win a prize.

I haven’t carved a pumpkin since I was a kid; it’s lots of fun. I should have probably cut out more room under the jib (front sail) to better communicate the sailboat image.

A few days before the big event, I was thinking about carving Tux, but a friend chose that. More carving photos online as well.
