My dad was always a great storyteller. He could get anyone laughing so hard as he told stories of his childhood from his perspective. It didn't matter how many times I had heard them before or how young, or old I was when I initially hear them. He always made me laugh and seemed to have a way of tweaking his stories that, over the years, made them more enjoyable and memorable.
I've never thought of myself as a storyteller. Or at least a storyteller who could make people laugh. I'm more of the awkward storyteller when it comes to telling a story to make people laugh. You know, the one who has heard or experienced something funny but can't quite get the punchline right? Or the inflection, right? That's me.
