Back in September, I performed for the second time at Grownups Read Things They Wrote as Kids. You might remember the first time I performed, where I read a teenage diary entry all about a soft-core erotica film I saw on television. This time, I read two teenage diary entries about these dreams I had about Star Trek. The dreams were – you guessed it – sex dreams.
A running theme, n’est-ce pas?
This reading was also included recently in GRTTWaK’s podcast so after you watch the video, make sure you subscribe to the podcast so you can hear my story along with a bevvy of other talented readers from across Canada. These stories are often weird, wonderful, always cringeworthy, sometimes bittersweet, and often adorbs. It’s amazing to re-read old diary entries and think about the person you once were when you were growing up, and to compare/contrast with who you are now. It’s always a revelation.
