Love Objects! Our Next Story Slam is April 24th
The theme of our April Delco Story Slam on is Love Objects! This could be taken one of two ways – Love Objects or Love Objects. What does that mean? Read on:
First, say Love Objects as if objects is a noun. These could be real objects such as wedding rings, engagement rings, or other romantic gifts. This could be an object of your love – perhaps an infatuation you had in high school or college. Maybe this is about something revealed on that first date – or the last date. The birth of a child often redefines the understanding of love, and would definitely be considered an object born of love. A love object could be a romantic meeting place such as the Eiffel Tower. We’d love to hear a Bromance story. If you are daring, a love object could be a story about a pleasure toy.
Now, say Love Objects as if objects is a verb, as in “I object!” We often object to a person’s plans because we love them and want to protect them. Perhaps your daughter informed you she was getting married but you weren’t convinced of the man’s intentions. Maybe your child decided to move cross-country without a job, and you tried to stop them. Tough love can be a form of Love Objects, and how does that fit in with unconditional love?
As you can see, there’s a ton of opportunities for you to jump on stage and tell your story. The Delco Story Slam takes place at Burlap and Bean on Wednesday, April 24th at 7pm. Click here to order your tickets. We hope to see you there!
