CH129: MomMe Conversation

Conversations with Mom after last entry: CH128: Read All About It
(Translated and some paraphrased conversation)
It seems, my mom still remembers how good I was in making speeches when I was in highschool (and maybe gradeschool as well?). She's asking me to make her speech for my sister's wedding next month! My initial reaction (thought in head) was WTF. How can I make a speech and make it seem like it's being said by mom? Well, that will be impossible if I will be the one to make the whole speech - it will not sound authentic if she says it. But, you've got to do what you've got to do. I can't let the other mom get all the spotlight!

Mom

tipz reminder. I asked you to make my speech for your sister's wedding

    Very busy at work lately because I have a lot to finish to make up for my long leave
    It will be easier for me to finish and make it if you give me an idea of what you want to say

            Usually in those speeches they have story telling

                You type here or send me a story of Achie when she was a kid - a memory you treasure and I'll take it from there.
                If you only want something simple, then you don't need my help with that!
                But you need to share a story. I need that to make the rest of the speech.
                You're flying all the way to US so you need a great speech!
                You don't want to be overshadowed by Jose's (the groom)mom!

                  No just a short story will do. Just share the fondest memory you have of Achie

                    Me

                    Okay, just send me here and I'll make you a 3-5 mins speech. You need a very spectacular speech because this is your FIRST and LAST wedding speech!
                  • Mom

                    Hahaha alright just send me the speech once I send you the story so I can start memorizing
