Addendum

Also, Storytelling is quite possibly the best class ever.  Especially since the professor is adamant about getting it into our heads that this is not a children’s programming class; it is a class on storytelling, which has a long and noble history being performed for audiences of all ages.  We’ll have practice actually telling stories every week.

If anyone in the Boston area is reading this, I will ideally need audiences to practice these stories on.  Please?  They will involve spunky chipmunks and the tablecloth of the devil and other such entertaining concepts.

    You could tell the story of Sticky Sticky Stombo (sp?), a perennial Grandma Judy tale about the hazards of giving one’s children long names.

    Ooh, I’d be happy to be an audience. (And I’d be very interested in hearing about what you learn, too.)

    Of course :-) And Batshua, maybe I can borrow Ben’s webcam and do a webcast!

    E is regaling me with snippets of folk tales that involve table cloths. And table cloths in stories with donkeys (who cough up gold), and sticks that beat people up on command. She’s a fan of folk tales, as you might suspect.
