I come from a small town and a long line of storytellers. By the time this skill was handed down to me it was rather diluted to being more of what we in the southern US might call being a big talker.

Yesssss! My mom and her two sisters made a real show out of it whenever we were all together as kids. So much fun! And to have one passed down this way was so special. Thanks for the love, Indrani!
