There’s a pretty good chance you’ll be visiting people in the next week or so. This video is totally helpful.
I’ve found that eye brows up and a little head bob lets the storyteller that you have a better story and to kindly shut up. I’ve also noticed that looking at your phone is the universal “Take your time, I have another 45 minutes.”
Quickest way to get people to leave you alone so you can watch football? “What do you think about the republican primaries?”
And if you need to kick off a storytelling fest at your next party. The line, “I bet I have a better baby puke story than you do.” Everyone has one of those stories.
