To get you all caught up, for the next two weeks we are going to feature all of the former champs who will be competing!
Remember when Meghan ate a paper plate because she thought it was a Pita? Well, come out on November 10 and hear her battle it out for the Grand Slam title. (Watch her original story below.)
Name: Meghan Age: 27 Location: Bella Vista. Make a left at the blinking police camera. Slam won: Epic Fail (I accidentally tried to eat a paper plate thinking it was a pita triangle.)
What was the last thing you won (story slam not included)? A ping pong game around 2:30 AM in my basement. At least I think I won…
In honor of FPA’s 10 year anniversary in 2011 – Tell us a story in 10 words.
When I was young I chased my imaginary friend “The Future”.
What would your dream theme be for a Storyslam? What story would you tell? Epic Fail, and I would tell my pita/paper plate story. But that already happened, so I guess the theme could be “Change of Plans” and I would tell this story about the time my friend and I were driving to South Dakota for a Native American reservation spirit quest, but the car broke down at Chicago and we had a weeklong Chicago bender instead.
Who do you know that tells the worst (or best) stories? My friend Adam Woods tells the best stories. Not only does he have a charming Tennessee accent, he has an incredible ability to take his time setting up a good story and hit you with a climactic ending. Being from Tennessee he also has a great cast of characters- like Popcorn Sutton, the moonshine maker.
Why are you a good storyteller? (aka why should your competitors be scared?) I’m short and to the point, with a healthy amount of self-deprecation. Seriously though, I’m going to lose.
