Sometimes, you just have to be careful what you wish for. Because just sometimes they may come true, and not in the way you think!
I was sitting at home, minding my own business and moaning about doing my uni assignment when the phone rings late wed afternoon. It was Clare Snowball ringing to let me know that she was unable to fly out that day to Brisbane to give her talk as she was very sick. I felt so sorry for her, as she had put so much time and effort into her presentation, and was really looking forward to hearing Stephen Abram talk. That was until she asked if I could go in her place to give her presentation. I beg your pardon? Not quite sure if I caught that right!
So, there I was, on thursday, sitting by myself in the foyer of Z block at QUT. I was pondering how just a few days ago, I was going to miss Clare and Stephen's presentations because I had missed out on a ticket, wishing there was someway I could have seen them. And never in my wildest dreams, would I ever have believed that not only was I going to hear Stephen talk, but going to give Clare's presentation as well.
Stephen's talk was great, and he was sad to hear that Clare was sick as he was looking forward to meeting her and hearing her presentation. I did not trip or fall over, and hopefully presented Clare's information to the best of my ability.
