Practicing "the Speech"
One of the best spring salmon fishermen on a river I visit gave me "the speech" to get out of trouble with a girlfriend. "I am sorry. It was my mistake. Please forgive me." He had been a missionary on many continents so I figured it was worth a try.
The next time she and I had an argument, I tried but forgot a few words. "I'm sorry. It was your mistake. I forgive you."
When I saw him on the river, I explained I messed up a few words so his "speech" didn't work.
"What exactly did you say?" he asked.
When I told him, he said I needed more practice.
