I went to The Moth StorySLAM tonight, scared shitless and ready to tell a story. I walked in, waited for my friend to show up and stressed out a little bit.
He arrived, we got a beer, I sat down and stressed out some more.
45 minutes later the show started and guess what - yes I stressed out some more.
There were about 300 people there and each of them have the option to tell a story. Anyone who wants to tell a story puts their name in a hat, they pick ten out of the hat, one at a time.
Three hundred people, eleven names in the hat.
Do you see where this is going?
Yepper, mine was the eleventh name.
No story tonight, better luck next time.
