Table Topics

Today on the bus home from school, I was talking with some friends about speech class (a class that I'm not in, but will have take some day). Apparently in that class, the teacher pulls out a card from the table topics game, and makes us talk about that subject for a minute. This speech has to be organized, and not seem like you're just badgering on stage. I looked online to see what kind of things I could end up talking about, and I thought that I would answer some of the questions here. The answers are short and abrupt, but I did spend a lot of time thinking about them.
These questions are from the original table topics game.

1. What did you get into trouble most when you were young?
Not practicing piano. This was a grand theme in my childhood. If I didn't practice......something bad would have happened. It's still a theme today, though this time, the wrath doesn't come from my parents, it comes from my teacher.

2. In your opinion, what are the seven wonders of the world?
The Great Barrier Reef, Angkor Wat, the Northern Lights, Machu Pichu, Stonehenge, the Alps, and Antarctica

3. Which historical sporting event would you like to witness?
The first ancient olympic games held in 776 BC

4. Which is more important, intelligence or common sense? 
Common Sense

5. If you could do something dangerous once with no risk what would you do? 
I would climb a hoodoo, stand on top of it, and watch the sun come up. Then I would stay there all day and wait for night, and then look at the stars.

6. Where would you live if you had to leave this country?
I would go to Tasmania, Australia, because for one, it is very pretty and green (and has a lot of wide open spaces), and two, there are a lot of sheep there. Sheep are adorable.  Also, it's an island, so you could go to the beach if you wanted to.


  1. No, it's not from the game. She gives you a topic and you have to give a well structured speech. Like the one that we did last time (THERE WASN'T ENOUGH TIME FOR ME TO GO YAY), you picked a random object from a box and gave a speech about it as if it was something ancient from an archeological dig.
