Children and public speaking. I tossed and turned all night dreading the task I have for today—speaking about dentistry to 80 kids in the first grade. I can think of very few things I’d rather do less. I have that nauseous stayed-up-too-late-and-ate-too-much-candy-at-a-sleepover feeling. I’m bribing them with goody bags. Yeah, I went there. Wish me luck.
