Friends, Family, Thank you for joining us today (who forgot to turn on the airconditioner) on this auspicious occasion. (where are the speech notes) This is a time of both looking to the future (oh no, the video camera isn’t on) and to the past, seeing where we’ve been and where we are going.
And to the reception. Yes, it’s been a while. It’s good to see you. Thank you for coming. Yes, I know which college I’m going to. It is a long way. I have a partial scholarship. I have grown a lot, haven’t I? Please try some cake. Would you like some punch? (smiling) I love you, too. (my face hurts, but it’s a good hurt) Goodbye! See you in a few months! (Clean up, clean up)
I love you! It was nice having you. See you soon!
