On the way home from the airport, I caught this radio program on the NPR Ideas Network. It’s regular folks telling a story, like open mic for storytellers. We all have at least one story we tell at parties that always score big. I know Lola and my husband have some seriously awesome ones. The stories on the program were so good, so raw, I was laughing and bawling all at the same time. I wonder what story of mine I could tell? The whole giving birth in Brasil thing? The time my car broke down in the desert in New Mexico and I got in a car with a random family to drive me to Arizona? You can call a story idea in, and then people vote on the one they like, and you could get flown to NYC to tell your story at a storyslam.
I have a new bucket list item, people.
What story would you tell? What story of mine is not terribly boring??
