I’ve noticed that some of the best 1st person narratives- fictional or non-fictional- begin humorously and lead then lead into the real meat of the piece, so to speak. I suppose I understand the necessity of warming up the audience, establishing ethos and creating a small stem of trust on which the audience can grasp onto, but… I wish that it was easier to just spew out the nasty shlack. To just straight up say, “I had a party at my house when my parents were in Mexico. I was assaulted that night.”
