Bring Your Own is a nomadic storytelling series that takes place in living rooms, backyards and other intimate spaces within the community. Each month, seven storytellers have 7 minutes to respond to a theme.
This story was told on October 21st, 2012, at Jackie Sumell’s house in the 7th Ward. The theme of the evening was “Are You Afraid of the Dark”, and Matt "Smoothie" Sargeant told this winning story providing life advice on Halloween Eve.
*Bring Your Own is brought to you by Liam Daniel Pierce, Laine Kaplan-Levenson and Nina Feldman. The next BYO is Thursday, October 17 at Fortier Park on Esplanade Ave. To find out more, go to bringyourownstories.com.
