Theme and Word of the Day

Our theme for this meeting is “Space — the final frontier”. You are invited to honor the contribution that the exploration of space has made to our lives (including the ability to hold a Toastmasters meeting in real time involving members from all around the world, something that Ralph Smedley probably never imagined would be possible).

You can honor historical space travel (Sputnik, the Apollo program), future space travel (SpaceX), fictional space travel (Star Trek, Star Wars, Galaxy Quest, etc.), or anything else you like.

Consequently, our Word of the Day is the noun “exploration” (the action of traveling in or through an unfamiliar area in order to learn about it) or the verb “to explore”.

We have liftoff!

Theme and Word of the Day

Word of the Day: Someday is an adverb meaning “at an indefinite future time.” For example, “Someday, I’ll wash the dishes.”

Theme: Pretend to be a Time Traveler Day

Pretend to be someone from a different time period who is attending their first online meeting.

Here are some ideas and examples:

  • A Person from the Past
    • Become obsessed with one trivial aspect of technology, like automatic grocery doors. Stay there for hours playing with it.
    • Act generally terrified of modern people.
  • Utopian Future
    • Refer to things that don’t yet exist or haven’t existed for a long time.
    • Show extreme ignorance in operating regular technology.
  • Dystopian Future
    • Walk up to random people and say “WHAT YEAR IS THIS?” and when they tell you, say “Then there’s still time!” and run off.
    • Stand in front of a statue (any statue, really), fall to your knees, and yell “NOOOOOOOOO”
    • Stare at newspaper headlines and look astonished.
    • Take some trinket with you, hand it to some stranger, along with a phone number and say “In thirty years dial this number. You’ll know what to do after that.”
