Avoiding taxes while invading Iraq and shopping for the military, connecting with loved ones as they walked through their final days with dignity, and reliving a near-death car accident almost twenty years after it occurred were just a few of the stories shared on Sunday night. The stories were so good that at the end of the night one of the judge's announced they had "a terribly difficult job" deciding and "were] filled with admiration for [the] tellers." The judges did decide, however, and two ladies took home the honors.

Second place went to veteran storyteller Yana Sherman for her story about how her brother's struggle with and ultimate death from lung cancer brought them closer together. Yana won a massmouth t-shirt and the opportunity to compete in the massmouth gala semi-finals at the Coolidge Corner Theater on April 14th.
Or, maybe you grew up somewhere interesting that shaped your life. On Monday night, March 21st, you will have the opportunity to share your story at Kennedy's Midtown on the theme "Where I'm From." See you there!
