Peter Cunniffe told the story of how he grew to love his family dog and how one horrible event left Peter feeling as though he betrayed the pet. His powerful story gave Peter the win for our "Betrayed" Story Slam, and Peter took home the prized pint glass and has earned a slot in the November 1st Grand Slam. (Peter happens to be the 2015 Delco Grand Slam champion.)
We heard a wide variety of Betrayal stories, some hilarious while others were really touching. We heard about fibbing to our children about holidays and the betrayal of being abused by a stepmother. We listened to a tale about spouses running from wild dogs and being chased by an alligator. We heard about college jobs with a shady moving company and the television role of a lifetime and how both led to a moment of betrayal. We heard about having the cops surround an innocent person's house and pranking a kid in grade school only to be repaid years later.
Thanks to all our storytellers, our judges, and all who came out to cheer on the stories. Our next Story Slam is themed "Joy" and will be held on the second floor of Side Bar and Restaurant on Tuesday, July 12th at 8pm. Order your tickets by clicking HERE.
