[rak-uh n-tœz, –tooz, –toos; French ra-kawn–tœz] noun
- a woman who is skilled in relating stories and anecdotes interestingly.
Mindy sent me a five year journal when I turned thirty. The journal poses a question and you answer it on the same day every year for five years. It’s an organized way to look back and think, “Whoa, I can’t believe that’s what I thought/did/ate/liked last year.”
Today’s question was “What do you want to say when someone asks ‘what do you do?’”
I answered it before I knew this word! To be “Beth the Raconteuse” would be super sweet as. I most definitely do not excel at telling stories verbally. Tom the bartender makes sure to keep me humble about this. I tell a story that I find adequately entertaining and he says, “Wait, is that it?”
I’ll be practicing. Maybe when I answer this question next year, I’ll be able to confidently write, “Beth the Raconteuse.” I’ll text Tom and let him know if so.
One thought on “raconteuse.”
Tom’s crazy. You tell the BEST stories. And I miss them every day!
