Bawdy Image

I love stories.  I love telling them, and I love hearing them.  In fact, one might argue that my all-too-lengthy stint of online dating lasted as long as it did because I relished so much hearing new, personal stories from strangers.

In January, I had the honor of telling a story at Dixie De La Tour’s event, Bawdy Storytelling.  While I admit I may not have shown my parents the link to this particular story, I am proud that I got to take the Bawdy Stage.

Recently, Bawdy turned six, and I was there to help celebrate what I think is one of the most exciting and compelling storytelling events in the Bay Area.  Tim Ereneta, a fellow storytelling and blogger, was also there, and he wrote an excellent article all about Bawdy.  Yay, Tim!  And yay, Bawdy!  The show is happening again tomorrow (Wednesday) night.  I will be there.  Will you?

Maybe you could bring an online date.  I guarantee that you will have a good time, and you are likely to walk away with a new story or two of your own.

If you are on the fence, you should read what Tim had to say about his experience:

Parenting Tip of the Day:

The pretend tears that are elicited by telling a pretend story about a pretend bear that eats a pretend family at the request of a real three-and-a-half year old, last just as long, and are just as loud as the real tears that might have ensued after sharing a nonfiction story with the same plot.
