  1. The first story was great – actually had me laughing out loud.
    The second storyteller was insufferably self infatuated; couldn’t make it the whole way through.

  2. Thank you Patticakes ~ tears of love

  3. I found Tommy’s story upsetting. It seemed more like a man telling a story about initially being molested by a girl but trying to put on a brave face and adding a comedic twist. He makes it clear that he never liked the girl. So he discovered he liked how it felt and that makes it okay? I don’t think learning to like how it feels makes it okay either.
    I enjoyed Patrica’s story.
    Satori’s story made me smile.
    But Tommy’s story hit me the wrong way. I can’t stop myself from thinking…he was molested….that wasn’t okay.

  4. Loved Tommy”s story! I thought it was hilarious, especially his opening line. I loved his comedic spin on this “coming of age” sexual experience. While an experience styled in this way could be thought of as tragic for some, I think most of us who’ve had a pubescent sexual experience can relate to his process of discovery with an after-school partner who was just as curious as we were. I think it goes a little too far to consider pubescent curiosity among peers a molestation. Tommy seems to have interpreted his experience with a healthy dose of comedic expression and appropriate perspective.

    Satori Shakoor I loved your transparency and sage advice for life in spite of its heartbreaking eventualities, you have a great sense of humor and story telling ability and you happen to be cute to boot! …..Where can I get some of THAT! – Lol call me!
