This evening I attended my first Toastmasters meeting. It was held at the California Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park––that building behind the trees. The setting is almost beautiful enough not to make you scared silly, isn't it?

The prez said that before I choose a group to join I might want to try out several different locations, because each club has its own personality. Then someone mentioned the fact that one of their members makes chocolate truffles for a living and often brings them to meetings. Wow. I was sure that this group is the one I would want to join, though they seemed surprised that I thought wine would be served. Toastmasters + no wine = false advertising, don't you think?
