So when I’m going someplace, one of three things is usually true:
1) I’m traveling by myself and know exactly where I’m going.
2) I’m not going anywhere in particular, and don’t really care to.
3) I’m with someone else and have made them completely responsible for knowing where we are.
I have a hard time with uncertainty. And that’s why, a few years ago, it took a very special set of circumstances to make me ask a stranger for directions.

Yes, yes, I know we were allowed to destroy sentimental objects in ways OTHER than setting them on fire. But from the moment I saw the task, I knew that for me, fire was the only way. Luckily a number of other people at the show felt the same way, so we agreed to meet …

It’s difficult to find a context in which I can compliment strangers and they are okay with it. This is not the fault of the strangers. This is because I am a tall white dude, and compliments from tall white dudes historically come with ulterior motives. Generally, people who I compliment assume I want something …

I thought it’d be mean to just glue a coin somewhere. All that does is make people sad. So instead I used an un-gettable coin to put a person in a position to see something they COULD get: a flash drive in sealed container. It took me a long time to decide what to put …

A Month Of!
A Month Of… Next: Stop Unexpected.
Aug. 14th we are going to have our second show.
A Month Of is a themed open mic where you get to choose the theme.
What sort of stories can be told for, Next Stop: Unexpected? Our fantastic hosts have some great elevator hijinx to tell you. But the theme is open to all sorts of stories. We want to hear where you take the them!
Do have a crazy public transportation story? Perhaps a friend popped up sometime when you weren’t expecting? Best surprise party ever? Maybe life was taking you down the wrong road, just to plop you in the place you really needed to be. We welcome all of your interpretations.
All month long our hosts and fans have been posting stories for you to read and listen to.
Jennifer Hall felt like this was a pretty great take on Next Stop: Unexpected!
