I'm having some difficulty explaining this, so bear with me. Some people like to tell stories at social gatherings or parties. I've observed the type of stories that are told can be quite different in different sociocultural settings, and some people seem to tell stories of a type that have very old cultural traditions. I don't tell stories because I'm not very eloquent, I don't like getting too much attention at once and I have trouble memorising and recalling information in an orderly fashion. But I would very much like to hear if anyone else have any stories to tell and also if the story is linked to a story telling tradition in your culture.
