1st time Ex Fabula storyteller and father, Wayne isn’t scared of lions, tigers, or bears. No, Wayne is afraid of losing the chess tournament… again. Studying strategies and learning new moves after a crushing defeat to the toughest opponent he’d ever faced, Wayne worked his fingers to the bone to up his game.
At the next tournament, Wayne soared, snatching pieces like Kim’s edges! But after several calls from his teenage daughter, Wayne had to leave the tournament early. He may have lost the tournament, but he won the audience’s vote for favorite of the night with his hilariously told story. Daddy duties for the win!
This slam was all about “fear,” but I laughed, I gasped, I awed, I felt seen. When the world is raging and it feels like there is little room for joy, being in community, hearing these stories, reminds me that when we stand together, fear doesn’t stand a chance.
Happy spooky season, Ex Fabula Family!
