An ah counter script for creatures of habit

Here is a superb submission for the role of Ah Counter by TM Swati from Mumbai. TM Swati has put in a lot of thought into drafting this one. We here at mymeetingroles.com think that this script must have fetched her Best Short Role award although we couldn’t confirm the same. What do you think?

Humans are creatures of habit. We take the same route to reach places, follow a fixed pattern of activities before going to bed and even have an anatomical sequence for bathing. Needless to say, while speaking too, we tend to use a subset of words more frequently than others. So prevalent is this habit that we have coined a term to label them. They are called crutch words – basically words such as umm, err, ah, you know, like etc. that we use while expressing our thoughts. In Toastmasters, we help you break free from this habit by having a dedicated Ah Counter. As the Ah Counter, my role is to keep a track of crutch words used by speakers today. I will present this report at the end of the meeting.
