I had just done the most stupid thing ever. I mean, in the history of Lisa, this one ranked with the dumbest. I was making the announcements during our Sunday morning service, and I was describing how excited I get to make the announcements because I LOVE to hold a microphone. And in my zeal, I let out a squeal. Into the microphone. Imagine a loud shriek, amplified around a room, zinging into your ears. OUCH!
I was mortified! I’m taking steps to become a professional Christian Communicator, and I know better than to squeal into a microphone.
I immediately started to apologize for my behavior. I think before my short stint of holding the microphone was over, I apologized three times. I walked off the stage feeling like a total failure, knowing I would NEVER be asked to make the announcements again.
