It was Tuesday at 3:45pm and I waited patiently for students to arrive for program. Fifteen minutes later, a group of 30 adults greeted me at the door.
“Hi! We’re here for the pop-tart making class led by Community MVPs!”
Great! I thought. Though, where in the world were my MVPs? By now it was 4:30pm and program begins at 4:00pm.
MVPs knew that recipe backwards and forwards and each person had perfected their speaking part to a tee. And yet now, at 4:45pm, I was standing in front of 30 adults I had never met before, trembling with fear, awkwardly trying to ease their confusion.
All I kept thinking was where are my community MVPs?
And then my alarm went off. It was 7:00am – I had dreamt all of this. I call it the pre-workshop jitters.
