I’m not sure which of those milestones I’m more proud of, but I do know that this collection of Mortified stories is one of my all-time favorites, and I can’t wait to see our packed-out house tonight.
Here is the KGW video clip, which includes Susan Danehy, Jennifer Coughlin and myself. (The Liz Lemon reference is from my joke that I thought I’d grow up to be Mother Teresa but turned out more like the 30 Rock character. Appropriately awkward!)
Favorite Snapshop Moments of the Night:
- Signing a Mortified alum’s ankle cast with quotes from the show.
- Melissa Ooms‘ Biblical language-laden reading made me laugh so hard that I used my inhaler twice.
- The sense of victory that comes after sharing the worst parts of your adolescence with a crowd of strangers.
- The realization that our worst teenage moments are an essential part of our lives’ narratives. Even when they’re really bad. Like, Screech-from-Saved-by-the-Bell bad.
