From the Cutting Room Floor
September 30, 2016
I give speeches every so often, and before I do, I write what a plan to say in its entirety. I never actually follow what I wrote (sometimes it’s not even close), but at least I go in with a plan. Here’s a clip that I cut out from an upcoming talk about two of the Home’s founders, Dr. George Potts and Captain A.G. Babcock, having a conversation over dinner.
Potts: We need a home for children
Babcock: Can you pass me a napkin
Potts: We’ll need those too
Babcock: What about them?
Potts: The kids are going to need napkins
Babcock: What kids?
Potts: Hold on, I’m getting a call
Potts: Sorry, what were we talking about?
Babcock: I can’t remember
Potts: Don’t you hate that?
Potts: Anyway, I love these tacos
Babcock: They’re the best, aren’t they? Say, can you pass me a napkin?
October is Founder’s month in Virginia Lodges.
