We lurkers fear face-to-face much more than a podium. True?

Public speaking is not as disturbing as that dream where I show up at a party dressed as a pelican and toting a bucket of smelt only to discover that it wasn't a costume party after all.

Snap, it's nice to see that someone else knows of smelt. Tasty fish, but hard to find in Lawrence.

Ain't gonna happen, Snap. Only time I ever gottem was to dip them out a river (really a creek) that flowed into Lake Superior during the spawning run in March. In the middle of the night. Hardly worth it.

depends on who's speaking, however there is that constitutional thing about public speaking so it doesn't really matter, does it.

I am definetly afraid of public speaking - especially when the speaking comes from a politician.

Smelt! They are a smelly fish - especially after several days worth of sitting in the trunk of my Hillman in the Arizona sun. We'd gone pike fishing at Lake Mary (it was being drained and there was no limit - not that we caught any). Anyhow, a sack of frozen smelt from the El Rancho got lost in the trunk. I was driving with the windows down, dreading the stop signs. Finally found a bag of rotten fish between the vertical part of the back seat and the floor of the trunk. Wheweey.
