I hate it when you are sitting there sweating like horse and these kids just keep rambling on and on. Back in my day, you had 3 speakers. the valedictorian, the salutatorian and some random guest speaker. At my daughter's HS grad...they had 10 freakin "valedictorians" who each gave a 5 -10 minute speech. it was held at the football stadium because the gym/auditorium wasn't big enough. end of may, 90+ ****ing degrees, 95% humidity and these kids just kept on and on and on... All I kept thinking was "for the love of god, SHUT THE **** UP"
