Yea. Had to miss the DumCoach clinic near Chicago and that sucked. Would like another opportunity to make it to another.

Yeah, Glaziers. Best part about that was I got to meet you and talk to Joe again, lol.
I was able to stay a lot longer than you so I got to see some good stuff. But I always think having a sit down one on one or in a small group with a guy like Dave or Joe is much more valuable. Hope to see you up there this year as well.

For me, one-on-ones or talking with a small group is much easier.  I spoke to a youth org in Maryland and there were only 10 or so, there.  That allows for guys to ask questions without feeling uncomfortable in a group of 100.  I always feel like I can take more time with giving a more thorough reply, because it seems like we have more time.  Perhaps that's why my phone conversations with coaches usually take more than an hour.

That is because laugh tracks are absurd.

I will be able to stay longer this year. Now that I am no longer a Glazier rookie. I can plan for it better.

Yeah, I like to know how it's going over.

For the Chicago one, I did a test run for a college class.

And a lot of dumcoach people and a lot of IHOP waitresses heard parts of the talk beforehand.

The IHOP waitresses were big on the ADD spiel.

I gave the Helen Keller intro to someone at dinner a week or so ago.  Other than that, the only thing I think I've gone back to in a form resembling that talk is the Ritalin joke.

Yeah I am going to work it out with their mom this year so I can make sure I am there at least 1 full day, if not 2.
