This morning I registered for the Puget Sound NCFCA Speech and Debate Qualifier. As in past years, I've signed up for several speech events, although this season I'm trying more than ever before-- five. More on those later.
I was sitting in the kitchen, munching on a couple particularly scrumptious strawberries, when Ophia walked in.
"So," -she plopped down next to me- "You're signed up for debate?"
"So... what's the resolution?"
Yes. This will be interesting.
I've got so much to do before a different tournament this weekend. I shouldn't really be on blogger presently... I'm justified, however, because as I type, I'm photocopying about 23 pages from Jane Eyre, my Dramatic Interpretation piece for this year. The book is resting on the copy machine, with my two arm-weights on its spine to hold the pages down. Who knew my weights were duel purpose?
Oip! The last page for Jane Eyre is coming through the copier right now. Time to go. But first, a quote from Ophie and my humorous duo interpretation [which we need to practice]:
Emily [Gray]: "Oh, Cornelia! This is terrible! I intended to be on deck when we sailed. I just know I'd get a lump in my throat as I saw our native land slipping over the horizon!"
Cornelia [Ophie]: "Our native land stays still. We slip over the horizon."
