Spillit: When Prince was My Girlfriend

Hey Y’all,

Here is a link to the story, When Prince was My Girlfriend, I told at Spillit: Lost & Found on July 8, 2016, at Amurica. Spillit is a live storytelling event; kinda like The Moth, only Southern.

My story starts at the 18-minute mark. Prince has been so influential in my life that I took his constant presence for granted. His death hit me particularly hard.  I was rather nervous when I started, but it really gets interesting about age 14.

I’ll be telling another story at Spillit: Dear Diary on Thursday, April 27th at 7 p.m.  No, it won’t be about Prince. I hope to see you there.

be free.
