Behind the story: There actually is a story behind this one! I recorded this in New York last year, right before I turned 39. We were in a professional radio studio, using gorgeous microphones, and of course, I had the inputs up way to high, so it sounds crunchy. Then one of the storytellers, I’M NOT SAYING WHO, asked me not to publish this. Something about being embarrassed. So I didn’t. For like, a whole year.

But then I ran out of stories. So you know, you tell it, eventually we’re gonna share it.
