This true story is part treasure hunt, part murder adventure. More importantly though, it is my absolute favorite life story to tell live.
For those who don’t know, there is a large community of competitive storytellers worldwide. The events are typically free (or inexpensive), funny and uncommonly genuine (most storytellers are amateurs telling true stories about their lives). I am a big fan of this community and try to take part in it as often as possible. (I have been a competitor in three states and counting!)
The most popular competitive storytelling organization is The Moth. The video associated with this post was told at a Moth organized StorySlam in Seattle, Washington.
If there is not a branch of the Moth in your town, search Meetup.com for other local storytelling meetups. I have found some in every city I have lived in.
