The debater

Just had this conversation:

Me:  Strider, I'm signing you for debate next year.  Why don't I also sign you up for some speech events, too?

Strider:  No!  I'm only going to do the Impromptu category.

Me:  I think it would be good for you to learn how to write and give speeches in some of the other categories.

Strider:  Mom, 95% of speeches are impromptu in life.  No, really 100% of them are!  Everything we say is impromptu!  What I'm saying to you right now is impromptu!  And I didn't even have a minute to prepare for it!
