Subject: RE: If you don't like ballads......
I should have said 'the spoken word'. Anything aided by shitloads of technology bears very little comparison; both story telling of course but in very different ways.

Having said that, my grandson would love his bedtime story to go on for days, and it sometimes does carry over from one night to another. He dictates half-a-dozen ingredients and the main characters, and I have to weave them all into one story. Great fun!

The most rapt attention I ever had from pupils was when telling them off-the-cuff stories. They got extra fun from guessing which ones were true, which ones false and which ones a mixture. Oops, thread drift!
