It’s that time of the year when the adorable sugar-addled tots bite the ears off of chocolate bunnies, cats ingest long strands of cellophane grass, and pagans and Christians argue that whole Eostara thing. Whatever your situations, nom responsibly, play nice with all your relatives at Easter dinner, and remember the true meaning of this time of year: the prelude to massive 50% off chocolate sales!
Just got the email from Marcus Calvert and Weston Kincade. They had hosted the Prompt Joust at Cleveland Concoction, an improvised storytelling competition where two authors improvise a sixty-second story from a common artifact inspiration. The winner goes on to the next round. The loser goes back to their seat to wallow in self pity.
I would like to say I performed brilliantly, but most of my improv experience was as a mime, so my vocal performance was not as polished as the trained actress I went up against. Still it was great fun, and I would do it again in a heartbeat.
Here are the links to the Youtube channel and their scheduled upload dates:
