The Bittersweet Tale of Gary the Oyster Crab
Storytelling is a craft, as well as an art. And you can find interesting stories in the most unexpected places.
For instance, I found this story on a blog created by a teacher. This isn't entirely surprising. Teachers are highly literate people. And they have to keep students interested day after day. So, in a way, their job is to keep telling stories to kids about what they're supposed to be learning, in a sense.
The story is called (expurgated for this blog) Holy Sh*t, Oyster! and it's really awesome! And so is the blog where it appears, Mr. Teachbad.
Everyone should read this blog. And Mr. Teachbad should write more stories and publish them in an ebook. :)
