If you know me you can attest that I really like to have a plan, with whatever I am doing. I do like a little spontaneity but I like the dance-to-the-radio-in-the-parking-lot kind of spontaneous.
Last night we had a Young Famer and Rancher meeting where they did their annual district discussion meet. When we got there the man in charge was looking for more people to participate in the discussion meet that night. The Rancher and I told him that we would do it, only if he was desperate for people jump in.
After two rounds of questions that we didn't have any answers for or any examples prepared we were done. I thought it was something we would just get to chalk up it up to experience. I was more excited for the door prizes they were passing out than the results. But then they finally came to it.
And I got 3rd place! I was so shocked when they called my name I just turned to The Rancher to make sure it was really me. The greatest part of all this means that we have a free trip to Sun Valley for the state discussion meet. It also means I have a lot of work to do... YAHOO!
