I am a storyteller. If you know me, you know that I always have a story. Most of my stories are actual truth, but I am able to find something funny in most things.
I have been accused of embellishing my stories. I usually am not embellishing. I have realized, though, that a lot of the things I observe are because I am always distracted and many people don’t notice when stuff is going on. When I notice and I’m with someone who knows me, I try to point out the unusual event, so that I have a witness.
I do have several friends who are storytellers, and I am near positive that they embellish. I am rarely with them when these things happen to them, so I don’t know how much is true and how much is fiction. I do believe there’s a strong in between, though. Embellishment.
