Speaking on My Feet
By Beth Beutler
  

1     "But I'm not prepared!" I said.
 
2     "That's the idea!" Melissa replied. "We are going to do impromptu speeches today."
 
3     "What does that mean?"
 
4     "It means that we will each be given a subject and have to give a two or three minute speech about it."
 
5     "But I won't be prepared!" I whined.
 
6     "I told you�that's the idea. It will show us how to think on our feet. In some theaters, it is called improvisation or improv. You have to improvise or speak spontaneously without preparation. It can also be called extemporaneous. It's fun!"
 
7     I didn't think it sounded fun. Evidently Melissa thought it was a blast. I was pretty nervous when I got to class.
 
8     The teacher passed out a basket filled with little pieces of paper. We each drew out a piece. Mine said, "Make up a story about a trip to a place not thought of as a vacation spot."
