Things You Can Say Giving A Presentation But Can’t In The Bedroom

Because I’m some kind of deranged oddball with too much time on my hands, it occurred to me that there are many things that get said by those giving presentations that would never fly in another context – namely, the baby-makin’ context. As a short diversion to your day, I present to you my top 10. Or rather, the only 10 I could think of in the spur of the moment:

  1. “I’m going to go really fast because we’re short on time – so some of this might be a little confusing. If you have any questions, save them for the end.”
  2. “I decided to spice this up with a bunch of cat pictures.”
  3. “I can never get the technology to work, so I’ll just have to do this manually.”
  4. “I’d love to meet you guys out in the audience, so do come say hello when we’re done.”
  5. “I’ll come back to that later.”
  6. “I just want to make sure everybody can hear me out there.”
  7. “Don’t worry, I’ll be putting this online afterwards.”
  8. “I’d now like to pass it off to my colleague, Brian..”
  9. “The hashtag for this session is…”
  10. “I’m afraid that’s all we have time for.”
Did I miss any obvious ones?
