I tell ya – Windsor Storytellers – YOU ROCK MY WORLD!! We had another incredible storytelling event this past Tuesday at Vesta Pizzeria! The restaurant was packed! Folks came to eat, drink and tell stories! We had eight brave storytellers take the stage and share stories that made us think, laugh, cringe, oooh and ahhh!

Our day began dark and early in the CBC studios with the Windsor Morning team to talk about Mouth Piece. As always, the studio was warm and cozy, and the questions were great! Thanks to Peter Duck, Mike Evans and the rest of Windsor Morning Team!

Here’s a link to the show so you can hear it! Thanks again CBC Windsor Morning! (You too Jonathan Pinto!)

Our set up at Vesta Pizzeria & Antipasto Bar was warm and festive. DJ Cam brought his sweet gear, and we set for the show!

We pride ourselves on making our set-up match the theme! All for you storytellers and audience!!

Starting the storytelling with an honest, vulnerable, heart-felt story about her wanderlust beginnings, photographer/tour guide and Guest Storyteller Sandi Wheaton quoted Pico Iyer and reminisced about sailors. Such a wonderful story! Thank you Sandi!

Sweet Sandi also told us a very funny joke – here’s the visual punchline!

We had 8 storytellers (well, 9 if you count when my hubby got up to share!) who were a bit shy to start, but after several musical interludes by DJ Cam, folks signed their lives away and took to the mic!

Our list of storytellers for the Home for the Holiday edition is:

Melissa

Tracey

Collin

Alice

Abriel

Cheryl

Danah

Judy

Storyteller Abriel – Being an ‘adult’ at Christmas isn’t all it’s cracked up to be!

Storyteller Cheryl – a repeat Mouth Piece participant (we love that!) – shares her Griswald-esqu holiday dinner story.

Storyteller Danah shares about her almost-criminal pre-Christmas brush with the law…and other oopsy moments!

Storyteller Judy is sure she was the sexiest gal to ever have her garders snap and her stockings fall…

Storyteller Tracey tells us about a Christmas in Cali…booze, bikes and a-ha moments!

It was a close competition with everyone sharing entertaining and beautiful stories. Poor audience has a hard task to choose a winner!

The Master Mouth Piece for the Home for the Holidaze edition is:

STORYTELLER DANAH!

First-time Mouth Piece storyteller Danah made the crowd roar with laughter with her winning story!

Oh such fun we had! Hosting, as usual, was a complete blast! I told some bad jokes, quoted our favourite holiday films, and shared a story about my soggy childhood leotards !

After the stories were told, DJ Cam played some of our favourite music and we danced into the night!
