I cracked up listening to you guys having to suddenly give a speech, this has happened to me a few times- I could feel your pain. The worst was at my sons soccer team’s overnight tournament. I had never been to one and was excited (I usually worked so only caught the second day). After dinner the team and all of the parents gathered in a big room, one of the fathers stood up and gave an encouraging speech. We were all nodding in appreciation. He sat down and said my name, I was shocked. After a few minutes I stood up-everyone was looking up at me. I had to wing it… in Japanese!
