Or that time you were unfairly grounded?

Theme: “Insult to Injury”

It’s like getting salt in the wound – you are hurting and then something happens to make the hurting worse. We’ve all been there. You ask god if you are being punished for something, but instead of being all silent and unknowable, god is like ‘Your face is a mess from all that crying. Jesus dude, it looks like you tried to French kiss a hornets nest.’

But seriously, stories. Beginning, middle, end. 5-7 minutes. Let’s do it. Monday, Sept 15. The OEP. 7:30 start.

Share widely.

If you’d like to throw your name in the can to tell a story, and you know you’ll be a lil’ late, post a comment here.

See you ’round the mic. And as always…

Listening is an act of love.
