Have you ever sat down in class only to realize you forgot there’s a test that day? Or decided to show off your water skiing skills (despite never being on them) and fallen flat on your face? What Could Go Wrong is a meme for a reason – everyone’s been caught off guard trying to fake it until they make it. In this episode, we have two stories about diving into a situation only to realize they are in way over their heads.
First is Heather Armitage, a library and hilarious storyteller who launches this teen drama about disobeying parents off with a bang. Her story was recorded live at 3S Artspace in Portsmouth, NH as part of the September 2019 show, Breaking All the Rules.
Next is Tristan Law, a LSS Advisory Board member and talent booker in New Hampshire. Before he was booking national acts at some of oldest and most popular music venues in the state, he was a bartender – which is fodder for many stories right there. If you’ve ever had a nightmare about entering a room completely unprepared, this story is for you.

I don’t know about you, but I’m one of those people who just can’t seem to get out of my own way. I dive into stuff without prep all the time, like the show and this podcast. And while I’ve been able to manage this personality, quirk with some skill, I love hearing about how other people deal with the realization that they are in way over their heads.
This episode, we’ve got two stories about people who dove in headfirst only to realize they were in no way prepared for what they were getting into. The first is from long story short advisory board member, Ian talent, Booker for local music venues here in Portsmouth, Tristin law. This story is so self-deprecating and sneaky.
Hilarious. I know you’re going to love it. Before we get to that story though. I want to send a huge shout out to the storytellers who were at the last long story, short show. They were great as always, we’ll be putting them out here soon on the podcast, but also wanted to let you know that if you want to join the live show, you can get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org.

The next of which is crushed stories of young love coming on September 8th. All right, first though, we have a story from Heather Armitage. She’s a wonderful kind and hilarious librarian who much like me was a bit awkward in my teen years and a not so good judge of situations that might be precarious.
