Ummm.... Awkward

I spent the evening with a charming group of young men and a lovely young woman.  The Venturing crew invited me to speak about the production process.

What am I going to talk about? Write, shoot, edit.  That's it  in a nutshell.  How am I going to extend this visit beyond three words?

The only other time I've done something like this was career day when Siobain was in third grade.  I used props and assigned rolls... not appropriate for this age group.

I would just have to do the best I could.  If it is only 10 minutes long, well, that's the way it goes.

... I went 45 minutes over my allotted time.  What the ha-shizzle!  It must have been that anxiety pill I took. And the fact that I talk a lot.  And I'm pretty sure that if I could edit out all the "ums" I would have finished with time to spare.  That's right, 45 minutes worth of ums.

All the while this wonderful group was attentive and polite.

Several golden moments of awkwardness too... I wish I could remember them.  Between nerves and the medication I'm kind of hazy on the whole thing.

I completely blame my buddy Ryan for not telling me to "rap it up"... sigh.

Here are my cuties Ryan and Tinker... 
I was so embarrassed for talking so long I couldn't hold my camera steady.

I can't wait for my girlies to be old enough to join this great group!
