Recently I had the honour of being the emcee (master of ceremonies) at a friend’s wedding. Although I am very familiar with speaking in public, I have never had this role before. I began with some trepidation—usually I speak in front of strangers and I am very comfortable with that. However, with this event I was amongst friends and I particularly wanted to do a great job for my friend, Anita. So I was nervous. But that quickly vanished and I had a blast! It all started with me accidentally introducing myself as their mistress of the evening! It could only go uphill from there.
