I have given so many speeches and performed live in front of so many people a simple speech should not frighten me. This one, however, is to my wife in celebration of our wedding and I would like to do a good job for her.  My wife does not care if I do a speech.  She won't be upset if I decide not to do it, but I think it would be nice for her.

I thought I might write it down because I know what I want to say, but I got lazy and did not do that. I forgot some of it and now I think I am going to wing it.

I told this to Ethan Carey my morning show partner and said ... "Sure, you are good on the fly depending upon how much you have had to drink."

He has a point.  So, now I think I am going to write it down again but it's last minute ... the clock is ticking and I need to get going. I wonder if I can pick up any tips on giving speeches from watching Donald Trump do it ... let's see.

OK, maybe not.
