off the playbook

I went off the playbook yesterday in my toastmaster’s speech. It was supposed to be a persuasive speech, and it was really a piece of performance art.

I got some awed responses, but then I got a hard “That is not how this is supposed to be done.”

yeah. I know

But I bet that MY speech will be remembered for a long time. And the by-the-book speech will be forgotten.
