My professor for public speaking class gave me a warning on my final project about a billion years ago. Right next to the “A” (woo hoo!) was an admonishment to be careful about having so much of what I do based on (trying) to be funny. There is a great reward when it works – like a high mark on a project. But when it doesn’t work, it can be hard to overcome. So, guess what happened to me a couple of days ago when I was preaching?
