Bring Your Own is a nomadic storytelling series that takes place in unconventional spaces within the community. Each month, eight storytellers have eight minutes to respond to a theme. BYO airs on All Things New Orleans and is a biweekly podcast on WWNO.org.
This story was told on August 15, 2015 at the Nims Theater on UNO’s campus. The theme of the evening was "Too Good To Be True," and here, winner Alicia Cooke shares of a time when she was young and in love, and how, well, at least she got a story out of it.
