Good Morning and Happy Thursday!
Fun fact about me: I used to compete heavily in high school speech and debate. Now, I didn't do the typical debate style you see on TV between presidential candidates. I did speech events, which are 10x weirder to explain.
One of my events involved compiling poetry into a 10-minute arc centered around a theme. You acted each poem out as a different character and it was a whole thing. Anyway, one season, I got lazy since this wasn't my main event, and needed to make a set really quick. So I chose the theme: breakfast.
I somehow made it to the final round of a big tournament. Just for reference, the other themes that round were: race, bullying, toxic masculinity and the dangers of unreachable beauty standards. I came in third. With breakfast.
Speaking of big issues and breakfast staples, a locally-screened documentary brought weight to the topic with a discussion on gender and the world of coffee. The event was at Open Eye Cafe and was sponsored by Carrboro Coffee Roasters.
