I think most of us have a long list of things we’ve either done that we never thought we’d do or lived through things we never thought we could survive. Some of us have have climbed mountains (either real or metaphorical). Some of us have survived death or heartbreak. Hey, some of us have even come back from the dead (or at least the emotional equivalent).

What have you lived through or accomplished that you never thought you could? How did it change you? Did it build you up or whittle you down? Do you wish it had never happened or is it something you’re grateful for now that it’s over?

That’s the kind of story we’re looking for at our next show, April 27, at Roy Street Coffee and Tea. The theme is “Never in a Million Years – Stories of doing something you never thought you’d do.”

Remember to keep it clean and under 8 minutes. Here are the rules and guidelines for telling a story at FGS:


Practice out loud in the car or in the living room on the cat. Let me know if you have any questions.

I hope to see you on the 27th.
