Best Man

So I have a buddy of mine that I used to work with and was really close with. I knew that he was getting married with in a year or so. He dropped a few hints here and there such as what are you doing on this date. Red flags start showing up in my head at this point, but eventually all is forgotten. That is until this weekend when he was up. That is when he asked me the question I was dreading he would. "Would you be my best man" Now if I wasn't so terrified of standing before people and giving a speech at the reception I would have said sure then and there. I know that I will tell him yes, it’s just that every time I have ever been forced to give a public speech I can feel my body and mind separating. To the point where I can hear my voice getting farther and farther away from my body. Frightful stuff being best man!

Certainly scary, would mean a lot to him though, unless you puke in front of everyone...Just joking...I'm a pretty shy person, But I've found ways to deal with public speaking. Can't think of any off the top of my head, I think you need to learn them through experience.
