I’ve been de-mo’d

28 11 2008

Alas, my mo is no longer with us.

We had a rehearsal for my brothers wedding last night and for the sake of the happy couple, I turned up clean-shaven.

I am having a few mo-withdrawal symptons, but otherwise I am quite happy to have my baby-smooth face back.

Speaking of the wedding, as the best man I am required to give a speech. Any hot tips for a successful best man’s speech?

do you feel naked without it?
even though i had a pretty wussy little mo, it took a couple of days to readjust to live without mo…

this is a general tip on public speaking that i’ve done enough times and heard enough times to speak with authority and say it sucks. don’t say:
“when i was sitting down this week to think about writing this speech I…”
“when i was thinking this week about writing this speech I…”
“when i was working out this week what to say about person X I realised…”
or other any variations.

just delete that bit and tell us the observation rather than telling us about the thought process in arriving at the observation!

does that make sense?

another tip…
be winsome.
chicks and old ladies dig it.
and adri will go -“isn’t my husband winsome”

Thanks for the tip dave – i hear what your saying. It’s the same as starting a story with “I just want to tell you a story…”. Unnecessary.

Winsome? I’ll have to work on my winsomeness. On top of my natural winsomeness of course.

I might say “isn’t my husband winsome” now I know what it means.

You could do a poem type speech… something like “Matt is fat”…

Clearly, since November isn’t finished, you must keep the mo. I want my money back 😉

It would appear that your mo may have been the source of your blogging power… I assume things with the wedding are getting hectic. Hope all is well. Miss you!!!!!
