- The easiest way to get a quickie repertoire is to make
up stories based on and of:
* Myths and folklore
* Shakespeare plays
* Some of the more personal and amusing stories about
historical figures, and if they're slightly obscure
and lead to giving an education, so much the better.
I tend to tell the story about the Grand Empress Olga
(my namesake) who was a great example of why you don't
want to cross a Russian woman.
Good places to start: Online, do a search for any
era/culture you're looking for and keep a gimlet eye
out for "folklore" types of words.
Maybe, though, we should all start putting our stories
into files on this site? I'm game...
