It's Official--Ft. Des Moines is now a recognized neighborhood

Tonight the mayor and my city councilman was presenting the Fort Des Moines Neighborhood a certificate recognizing us as an official neighborhood. Roger and I was there representing the 'hood. I thought it would be a stand up front, smile, and listen while the certificate is read.
Smile, shake hands with city councilman, and take certificate.Listen to the Mayor, shake his hand, and sit down. What's this????
You want me to speak??? I wasn't prepared for this. I said a few stupid things, and ended up with "and stuff like that." Where did that come from? I'm sure I really impressed everyone with my great public speaking ability.
