First Smile

An old tale which shows who smiles more, men or women

I don’t know where this great tale comes from. I was sent the skeleton many years ago and it has since just grown into my version.
If you know anything about the tale, I’d love to receive a mail.

This live recording was made in Dec. 2021 as part of a Home office – Connect with a story online performance.
