The How I Learned Series features writers, storytellers, comedians, and other raconteurs holding forth on a different theme. It all happens every last Wednesday of the month, and sometimes more than that, which basically means you will have the best night of your life on those nights, repeatedly.



HOW I LEARNED ONCE WAS ENOUGH

It's springtime, but Mercury's going retrograde this month--inevitable cosmic misfires, communication breakdowns, small kitchen disasters, exploding external hard-drives, keys breaking off in locks, toothbrushes dropped in the dirty toilet, and those newfangled iPad thingies snapping in half like a hard shell taco.

My unsolicited advice? Just don't let anything stand in the way of you joining us for more monthly fun-time storytelling. Because (1) some things should only happen once but How I Learned is not one of them, and (2) everything will be okay forever.

The How I Learned Series presents:
