Because what's the fun in divorce, if you can't turn it into a live performance as part of a storytelling series? I mean, am I right? High five? Anyone? Next Tuesday, I'll be talking about my divorce. If you've often thought, "Sure, I've heard David talk about his divorce before, but I'd really like it as a finely-crafted and well-delivered personal essay." You're in luck. I'm presenting my essay “One Request Before You Leave: How a road trip, the Beatles, and a motel in Missouri made me a better ex-husband" at the Oral Fixation Show, as part of their season two kickoff.

Other presenters include: Catherine Cuellar, John Gorman, Whitney Presley, Paul Scott, Jim Smith, and Debbie Vaughn. They will talk about other things, all around the theme "Baby Steps." It won't be divorce, divorce, divorce. What's the fun in that? I'm friends with Catherine, so you should go to see her speak too. She is always awesome with whatever she pursues.

You should buy your ticket in advance. It's $15, instead of $20 at the door, and it will guarantee seating. The show is at the MAC (3120 McKinney Avenue), which is a pretty cool place.

From the newsletter:

Arrive early for best parking, to have a drink or snack, and to peruse the fantastic MAC galleries. Plan to stay after the show to enjoy a reception in the lobby of The MAC to chat with cast and audience members alike. Live streaming election returns will be available in the MAC lobby both pre- and post-show for your viewing pleasure.

The MAC is a blue building on the east side of McKinney Ave 1 1/2 blocks south of Hall Street. Parking is available in the lot, on Oak Grove, behind Cafe Express and behind City Vet.
