Laughter is so much easier to get out - but then even doing the cheers to the new Mr & Mrs I can barely get that out!
I am going to see if WikiAnswers has anything for us saps!
See I had two opinions from people:
"DON'T try and be funny, people always do this and never succeed and then you feel bad for them" yikes...
"Oh you HAVE to be funny, everyone's expecting it!"
Ok so after that... I was thinking of how much pressure it is to be funny.
So I settled on my favorite story of how my best friend and I met, which is a cute story since we met in pre-school and I even MADE it funny by doing an impression of her which I got a laugh out of everyone for.
All in all I got compliments all night from people I didn't even know saying that they were crying from my speech and it was the most thoughtful speech and best of the night. So it wasn't a BAD speech it just ended in many tears for the entire table.
