“I know where you can become King of the World, but you have to get passed an alien and a real living medium size plant.”

“Then John and Bob jumped into something green. It was a gladiator.”

“I was sitting in my washing machine at home wondering why my name is Mustard when I am really a pencil sharpener.”

These creative one-liners were extracted from short stories written by kids and reviewed by YPG Cares volunteers during the April 15th Story Love #12 event held in The Drama Bookstore (250 West 40th Street). Nine dedicated YPG volunteers from seven AAP member houses powered through over 100 story reviews for the Story Pirates.  A vote was taken and the volunteer who identified the winning one-liner received free tickets to the Story Pirates’ monthly adult After Dark show, where free wine and good fun flows. YPG Cares volunteers and Story Pirates’ performance artists delighted in the evening’s dessert feature:  a Rum Cake two Ways (rum and chocolate cake) with a Walnut/Coconut Crunch topping Covered in Rum Glaze.  Some folks were known to eat two pieces!
