"Alright, so this is a [event name] car. It is powered by [propulsion mechanism]. The car always veers [usually right, but sometimes left, depending on which car]. Here's the practice log, and leave the technical questions to me."

After the first year or two, I never had a steady partner in the vehicle events, so I gave a form of this speech while standing in line at nearly every event I went to after that.

"This schedule is even worse than last year's!!"
Sadly, this one is somehow always true...

"'Twould be nice to get the schedule more than a week before state..."
Or some variation of that.

"[so-and-so] is in [event] now, and [so-and-so] is in [event] and... So who in the world are we going to put in [event]?!"

A - "Where did I put my Sharpie?"
B - "What Sharpie?"
A - "The one I put right there!"
B - "I didn't take it."
A - "Then where'd it go?"
C - [from the other room] "I took it, sorry! Here's it back."
A - "Thanks." [uses it for 1 second]

"Let me see your practice log."
-My coach Brother Nigel to me at every comp in the 2019 season, checking in my vehicle that he saw me frantically piecing together the night before and that he knows won't work properly, as I hand him the practice log that I've handed him at every comp that season with no variations or edits, despite making massive changes to the vehicle after each comp in a desperate attempt to fix it

My relationship with Mousetrap Vehicle was questionable at best, but at least I got to say that I did a pure building event at one point in my life lol
