A Story 84 Years in the Making

In February, 93-year-old Tom Sitter entered The Moth in Madison StorySLAM storytelling contest in Madison, Wisconsin. He told about his Valentines Day experience in 1933, when he was in third grade.

Sitter scored the competition's first-ever perfect ten. Maybe it's because he told it so well, or maybe it's because we can all relate to the tale. Or both. He now advances to the StorySLAM championship round. I hope we get video of his performance in that round. -via Tastefully Offensive

I'll look for the fulltext printed version instead.
