Today’s prompt I am following came from naked with black socks and the question is:
Are you comfortable in front of people, or does the idea of public speaking make you want to hide in the bathroom? Why?
When I first read the naked with black socks my mind went literally. I pictured myself naked in black socks. However, I was not in front of people. LOL On the topic of being nude in public (still on my mind’s way of thinking) nudity is beautiful and natural. I use to take part in public nudity events at our local nude beach when I was “pretty” in my mind. After kids and gravity pulling my perfect breasts down to places they don’t belong. And my butt giving a new meaning to the word “flabby”. Well, you get what I am saying. My self-image went to an all time low. (did not help I was in an abusive situation) So, no more nude beaches or feeling comfortable naked. UNTIL I BEGAN TO LOVE ME AGAIN. I have yet to visit College Cove again but I do like cleaning the house naked. LOL Ok, enough on nudity! On to today’s prompt:
Yes, public speaking makes me nervous and horrifies me, to say the least. Last time I spoke in public it was at my graduation from high school. Well, adult education anyway. I dropped out of high school when I was pregnant and I was only 35 credits short. Anyways, fast forward to 1992 and I was about 22 I think and I finished my credits and the local adult education. There was a cap and gown ceremony also. My teachers and the staff at the school deemed me worthy of a scholarship. (one of two given) They asked me to speak at my graduation. I was both humbled and honored. Even so I had to speak in public. I was a bucket of nerves but I got a standing ovation from a crowd of about 50. Thirteen or so graduates. One of my proudest moments for sure. Later, at the cake and punch hour many people came up to me and said I should go into some type of writing career! To this day, I have no clue what I said. I was to terrified. That was my public speaking story. If forced to speak publically I would. If not forced and had a choice that choice would be a big “NO!”
I will stick to cleaning my house naked with just me, myself, and I there to watch! LOL!!!!!
