I’ve got an awesome prompt.
Last Saturday see, my friend Paul told me about The Moth and intrigue swept my heart. (I love when that happens). The best part? Turns out The Moth (a compelling storytelling concept and podcast series) became a “thing” after the founder used to have people over and “forced” them to tell a story as a condition of the party. During those tales, moths would circle the porch lights and so The Moth moniker arose.
I instantly begged The Rock to let me do that at our housewarming party next month, but he nixed the idea straightaway, while I commenced a fit and told him I was going to do it anyway…
…Right here on my blog, and as this is my intellectual (I use the term loosely) property he cannot do a thing about it.
So then he showed me this:
I was bowling.
Apparently this is how I bowl.
I bowl like that.
My husband took this without my knowledge. I never knew I looked like a lopsided football goal post (what are they called?) when I bowled. But he knew…oh he knew. Please leave him a comment and tell him that this irresponsible act resulted in needless embarrassment and humiliation and that my personality is not “asymmetrical,” so it doesn’t at all “logically follow” that I would bowl like this.)
As for this week’s PROMPT.
I know I’ve already asked you to tell me a story, but this time, I want it to be true. Something from your life. And if you need a theme, try “college.” Or not.
You know the drill.
But make it true.
It needs to be true.
The best things in life are true, even the fact that you bowl like Elaine danced in Seinfeld.
Please post your submission in the comments OR post in your blog and leave a link to your blog in the comments. And know what else? It’s be really bichen if you did a vlog! Do a vlog of you telling a story! Yes! Please? I’ll try to do one too if I can figure out how to charge my Flip.
