TubaBoy Honored at Debate Banquet

TubaBoy and Suna a Few Days Earlier

OK. He was mentioned at the debate banquet as a “double threat.” That means he is in debate and band. The instructor praised TubaBoy’s attitude and drive.

And so what if every body on the debate team was mentioned?

I learned several things at the banquet:

  • Preparing for debate season is a lot like practicing an instrument. You have to work at it several hours every day if you want to master the skill.
  • The debate coach is a really good BBQ chef. The chicken was perfect!
  • TubaBoy needs a different role model for public speaking. Although the debate coach was natural and funny, he kept his hands folded in front of his chest, never hit a power neutral stance, and had way too many filler words.

Unfortunately, we forgot the camera (even though I put it were we would remember it—ha!).
