"I have to give a speech at my bestie’s 21st and I am wondering how you tell which embarrassing/funny stories are fine for everyone’s enjoyment and which ones will be absolutely mortifying and make everyone in the room uncomfortable? I’ve seen so many people get this wrong and I DO NOT want to put her (or myself) through that!"

Dannielle Says:

guys… when did we start giving speeches at birthday parties?

Do – Tell stories everyone already knows (i.e. broken bones, drunken arrests, winning pageants, etc)

Don’t – Talk about your bffs SEXCAPADES. I don’t care how cool y’all are, talking about boners in front of a bunch of people IS WEIRD.

Do – Talk about the first time you met.

Don’t – Talk about farts, poops, vomit, or stomach pumping.

Do – Make some sort of joke about how the two of you actually made it to your 21st bday LOL WE R SUCH CRAZEE KIDS.

Don’t – Get super wasted and forget your speech.

Do – Let yourself get drunk on emotion and bust out those tears when you talk about how much you love your best friend and how you would go to the ends of the earth for her.

Kristin Says:

That’s a pretty solid list of dos and don’ts… I would also like to add that your speech should not include more than one inside joke and that it should include things about your friend that you know, appreciate, love, and admire, as well as a few things that she does that are hilarious that everyone knows about and she can laugh about.

Por ejemplo: SARAH HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE MOST HONEST, KIND, AND DARING PERSON THAT I KNOW. SHE HIKED MOUNT KILIMANJARO, BUILT HOUSES FOR PUPPIES, AND GRADUATED WITH HONORS ALL WITHIN THE PAST THREE YEARS. SHE ALSO WATCHED EVERY EPISODE OF ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK IN ONE DAY. WHAT AN ACHIEVER.

Also, my dad said that he plans to record his speech for my wedding and then lipsync to it at the reception. So… you could also do that.
