Just email me!

“Just email me; I will look at it and make some suggestions.”  It sound easy; we do it all the time.  But what happens when we KNOW what we going to say, but it comes out mumbled?

That is EXACTLY what happened to a fellow member of Birrdsong I was talking with last week  A few months ago, he told me he was writing a speech and asked if I could help with the images.  I said sure.  Well, that’s not exactly what happened.  He told me what he was doing and I fumbled around what I wanted to say.  Eventually, I said wanted to say about the images.

I saw him again and I asked how the speech was going.  He told me it was almost done and he should soon need my help with the images. Then I froze.

I new what I wanted to say: “Just email me; I will look at it and make some suggestions,” but I just couldn’t say it.

I got in the car and mentally thought about what I WANTED to tell him.  After I got home, I sat down and wrote it out.  It took about half an hour. But now, when he calls, I pull up the script and will amaze him.

I realized it just takes some time to get all the words out in the order I want.
