Once upon a hitchhiker…

There are countless things that could go wrong when picking up a hitchhiker, but occasionally we happen upon one that (underneath the “dirty old dirtbag’ demeanor) gives us a ‘fresh’ perspective. Ironic, yes. This was the story when Ky decided to pull over, (and immediately regretted) picking up a ‘dude’ on I-70.

Watch her tell the story herself in this YouTube clip. You have no excuse to miss it, as Ky is now officially (drum roll please…) The Best Story Teller in Philadelphia! She won our 2009 GrandSlam with rave reviews, and her story is a memorable one at that. Check it out below.
