Only two of the three things that TM Aiden from Toronto mentions in this script for the role of Timer happened. We know which two but won’t tell you. You can imagine them but first, read his hilarious submission below.

In our last meeting, we over shot our time by 30 MINUTES. I lost family time with my kids, had to have my dinner alone and missed dinner table gossip about our neighbours. I don’t want to let that happen again. So I took things on my own hands. That’s how I became the Timer for the day. I will alert all the speakers and evaluators about their time intervals so that we can wrap this party in good time.
For the prepared speeches, the time limit is 5 to 7 minutes. At the end of 5 minutes, I will flash the green card, followed by yellow at 6 and red at the end of 7 minutes.
For the Table Topic Session, the time limit is 1 to 2 minutes. At the end of 1 minute, I will flash the green card, followed by yellow at 1.5 and red at the end of 2 minutes.
For the Speech Evaluations, the time limit is 2 to 3 minutes. At the end of 2 minutes, I will flash the green card, followed by yellow at 2.5 and red at the end of 3 minutes.
There is a grace time of 30 seconds after the red card is flashed each time to wrap up your speeches.
I will come back with my report towards the end of the meeting.
