There's Always A First Time

Last Thursday at the pool:
"-- cancelled on me.  I don't have anyone to give the shiur (Torah class.)"
"There's something I had been thinking about..."
"I'll check with one more person, and if that doesn't work out, I'll let you know."

Duhh!?!  What had I done?  I volunteered to give a shiur?  Gevalt!

Yes, I did it on Shabbat.  It was very participatory.  Nobody dozed off.

I'm sure it was great, unlike the one my mother volunteered me to do in a few weeks at her backyard Ladies' Shalosh Seudos. :-o
(Last year it was Parshas Pinchas, so I could just wow everybody with my light-speed recitation of the names of the bnos Tzelofchad!)

I'm sure your audience was wowed.

Kol hakavod. I'm sure they asked you because they knew you wouldn't disappoint! Not everyone knows how to give a shiur.

Shira, I was asked to give a suggestion, and this was the first time I suggested myself.
