true stories

07Jul03

i came to a realization today. i know it sounds weird, but i like to listen to people tell stories about themselves. now telling a story about yourself is VERY different from talking about yourself. it facts that are interesting to others vs. facts that are interesting to yourself. two of my greatest intellectual pleasures, and they aren’t really intellectual, they’re just not physical are streaming this week’s installment and past shows of this american life and stopping in to read some stories on fray. all of it is personal non-fiction, expertly told. it keeps me in stitches, it makes me laugh, it makes me cringe.
