Pass the mic.

It is entirely true that one of my reasons for teaching is that I am a ham actor waiting to happen. Or maybe a rock star, similarly waiting to happen. These days, put a microphone in front of me, and I'm in love: with the stage, with the lights, with the audience. With the applause and even the cheering. Did I bring the house down? Yes, I kind of nearly did. And yes, I enjoyed it.
