Japanese habit/custom ~12~ when you give a speech

  We sometimes have to give a speech in our daily life.
Japanese people are shy. So, I guess there are a lot of people
who don't like to give a speech in front of many people.
  There is a way to ease the tension.
  At first, you write kanji of 人 on the palm by finger.
(人 means "person " or "people" in Japanese)
 And you drink it.( you pretend to drink(or eat???) the word 人)
 And then your tension must be eased at the moment....

 I have heard this way when I was kid. I think some of children around me
used to do this when they had a tense.

  There is one more way.
  Japanese people give advice, you just imagine you were at pumpkin farm and
imagine audience pumpkin.

 I don't know these way are effective.^ ^ ;
I just introduced our habit.

Thanks for reading!

That's cool :D I'll do this 人 thing the next time I'll have to do a speech. I'm glad I didn't have to do it in years though... I hate it.. haha
Some people said to me I should imagine all of my audience was naked... But I don't know if I really want to imagine this! XD
