Aaron Mills won our February "Curiosity" Story Slam with his story of how he and his wife prepared their son for the birth of a younger sibling and how the son replied with a startling response. Aaron won the prized pint glass and earned a slot in the 2016 Grand Slam, which will be held in November.
We heard an interesting array of stories on "Curiosity", several in which the the person regretted being curious! We heard a nurse's story of caring for an inmate and wishing she hadn't learned about his crime. We heard about a young son's bewildering career goal, being locked of one's apartment while wearing only boxers shorts, and the guilt one feels years after a bullying incident. We heard about the curiosity of a lost sibling and the curiosity of a famous author, We also heard about how a child's curiosity led to a disastrous Christmas morning,
