Weekend Writing Prompt — Impromptu

They called me up to the stage
Asked me to say a few words
I wasn’t expecting it
I didn’t plan for it
I didn’t have any prepared remarks
It was unscripted
Ad-libbed
Completely offhand
Extemporaneous
From the hip
Totally spontaneous
My impromptu speech
Got a standing ovation

(Exactly 48 words)

    I would be wondering what it was I said. Well done.
