This may not come as a surprise to anyone but I’m pretty non-confrontational. In fact, if I had a superpower it would probably be my ability to pretend something isn’t happening. Relationship going off the rails? Oh, we’re just going through a rough patch. Car sounds worse after I get it back from the mechanic? Oh, it’s probably just a rock in the tire. People often mistake this attitude for some kind of zen-like acceptance. Nope. I just have a special talent for emotional procrastination.
Luckily, you guys get to show me what I’ve been missing all these years. April’s show is about confronting something or someone in your life. Was it the neighbor whose dog won’t keep it in his yard? Was it the idea you got when you were a kid that you weren’t good enough? Every day we have to decide if we should confront something we’d rather not. Think back to a time when you just couldn’t take it anymore and did something about it. Whatever your story is, come by Roy Street April 24th and tell us about it. Don’t forget, in an effort to get more people onstage, we’re shaving the time down to 8 minutes. So practice your story on friends and pets to make sure it’s somewhere between 5-8 minutes long.
The rules for stories are below but you know the kind we’re looking for: true stories that happened to you that still mean something to you days, months or years later. I hope to see you at our next show on Thursday, April 24, 7:00pm at the Roy St Cafe.
