Speech! Speech!

I gave a speech the night before my sister's wedding, as the MOH.

Here's what I wanted to say:

Can I have everyone’s attention please?

Hi. I’m Heather Connor, and for the past few months, I’ve been introducing myself as the Maid of Honor, or the MOH, but today, I don’t want to do that. Today I just want to introduce myself as Kelly’s sister.

I guess everyone here already knows that I’m her sister, but I just wanted to say it again. As much as I’ve loved being the MOH, being Kelly’s sister is one of my favorite things that I’ve ever been.

She’s always been there, ever since I can remember. She was my best friend when we were little and is still my best friend now that we are….old. When I have something exciting happen to me, she’s the one I want to tell. When I am upset, she can always make me feel better.

I’ve always really admired Kelly and wanted to be like her. That’s why, whenever we would talk about the kind of man we wanted to marry, I always thought that Kelly had better marry the best man ever, because anyone else wouldn’t deserve her.

That’s why I’m so glad that she found Dahl. I watch the way he treats her, the way he talks to her and looks at her, and I know that they are perfect for each other. I never worry when she is with him, because I know that he will always be good to her.

And I know he’ll always be nice to me, too. He’ll always let me talk to him about what I did in school, or take me to work if I miss the bus, or listen to me babble about my boy problems. I’ve never had an older brother, and I am thrilled that now that I do get one, his name is Dahl Q. Salmon.

So I guess all I’m trying to say is, I love Kelly. She’s one of my favorite people in the whole wide world. She’s always been happy, but I’ve never seen her as completely happy as she is now with Dahl. I think them getting married is just the best idea ever.

Dahl, you belong with Kelly. I love you both! Congratulations!


Looks good, huh?


Here's what the speech sounded like instead:


"Um. Ummmm. Whew. So for the past few months, I’ve been introducing myself as the Maid of Honor, or the MOH, but today, I don’t want to do that. Today I just want to introduce myself as Kelly’s sister." Sniffle. Rapid blinking. "Whew. Ummm." Wobbly voice rears its squeaky head and I bumble through the rest of my speech.
