... and I'll volunteer for something for which I am completely unqualified.
Namely, speaking to luncheon groups at local senior centers about fostering for the animal rescue group.
Ha! Yeah, I've really gone and done it this time.
You see, our group is desperately in need of more foster homes. And more volunteers, in general. The problem is that these days everyone is so damn busy. So I got to thinking, who has time on their hands? Who is not tied up in a nine-to-five every day?
Senior citizens. Oh, I mean, I know that they're busy, some more so than others, some probably busier than I am, but I thought they would be more likely to have the time to volunteer. Because I'm good at stereotyping like that.
And so I suggested to the FC that we go to local senior centers and give a little talk about volunteering for our group. And I volunteered to give the talks. Because I am insane. The last time I did any public speaking was in high school.
But heck! I figured, I'm used to talking to people at adoption events and at the pet store. It'll be just like that, only with a microphone! (I have never used a microphone before in my life.) And I'm a ham, and God knows I never shut up, so I should be all set! Right? Right? Riiiiiiiiight?
First talk is on Wednesday. Wish me luck.
