April 11 Grub N Gab Toastmasters Recap

The theme for this meeting was Power of Curiosity. Tien shared a story about the Power of Curiosity and children’s fascination with microwaving Peeps.  We had a guest Nicole who plans to join us next week as our Table Topics Master!

Sapna delivered her icebreaker speech. She discussed performing in a state Bollywood dancing competition, speaks four languages, and she has always been a curious child who liked to draw on the walls in her room. She even tasted vanilla extract and learned that it did not taste as good as it smelled.

Saurabh’s speech was on the day I met her. We all thought it was about his wife, when we come to find that it is about his daughter. I really enjoyed the imagery of Saurabh playing candy crush on his phone while his daughter was being born at the same time. But we got to hear about the whole nine-month process of the pregnancy after being urged by his parents to have children. His daughter was an unexpected surprise!

Deb had lively Tabletopics questions about curiosity. Heather talked about Google and instant gratification somewhat stifling the curious minds, Nicole discussed the curiosity of space, and Jeanie spoke about her friend and her sitting high up in a tree and falling down – they both turned out to be okay.

Marianne won for best evaluation, Sapna won best speaker, and Nicole, our guest won best Tabletopics.
