Women love men that can command authority and for just a moment capture the entire attention of a room. For the average guy, giving a toast is as close to being a rock star on stage as we're ever going to get. If you find yourself at Thanksgiving,
and there is that awkward moment at the beginning of the meal (or earlier during cocktails), seize your rockstar moment and make the ladies swoon. Heres a quick recipe for a memorable toast:
1. Thank the host/hostess for bringing together friends at this time of year
2. Celebrate our great fortunes over the past year -- if you know others in the room/at the table, call out their specific successes (but not your own)
3. Ask people to bow their heads for a moment and think about something they are grateful for, and whatever their beliefs, how they hope to share
their abundance over the next year.
4. My the hope and joy at this table flow over all of us and bring a great year ahead.
