Beth Horenkamp was the winner of our “Pet Peeve” Story Slam. Beth explained her pet peeve with her husband’s overly cautious nature. She relayed the story of a ski trip and the disappearance of her skis which she’s not likely to live down any time soon. Beth’s story won her the prized pint glass and earned her a spot in the 2019 Grand Slam!
Our “Pet Peeve” Story Slam included stories that encompassed a wide range of subjects from a guitar lesson with “The Boss” himself to questioning one’s faith. Christian Carrion shared his irritation at not being considered a “real Puerto Rican” while John Teske opined on PA drivers. Other storytellers like Justin Oberholtzer and Linda Peacock’s demonstrated that their pet peeves had more to do with their own habits than those of other people. Tony Crocamo explained that while others might consider arguing a pet peeve, he actually considers it a good thing.
Thanks to all our storytellers, the judges, and everyone who came out to laugh, applaud, and be part of our storytelling community. Big thanks to our emcee David Smith who successfully shamed reluctant storytellers into sharing their stories with promises of beef.
