Tonight, Michelle and I went to see one of the many performances at the 2017 Indy Fringe Fest. We saw comedian Stewart Huffand his performance “Sense Ain’t Common”. Mr. Huff is a touring stand-up comedian who tells humorous stories instead of jokes. He is one of those “make you think” storytellers. He shares stories about getting kicked out of the Arc Encounter in Kentucky and a cruise ship. This guy has a problem with boats. But he also talks about a bigger message of helping and listening to others. He shared a story about his love of the conversation that occurs at truck stops in the lounge. When hearing something he may not agree with, he asks what the person means by what they said. Not to argue with them but to learn where other people are coming from.
Think about that, rather than arguing with a stranger and telling them they are wrong, he listens to them to find out why they are saying what they are saying and writes the responses in his notebook. I may start doing this. I think we can use more of that in the world.
This is an over 18 performance because he uses some mature language. This was a great show and we really enjoyed it. We will definitely put Mr. Huff on the watch list for future festivals.
The Indy Fringe Fest is an 11 day festival with eight stages and 72 shows on Mass Ave. There is something for everyone. There are even some shows for kids and families. This is our fourth year visiting the fest. We have been lucky to never have been disappointed in a show.

Things have been going well here. We are wrapping up spring break. We survived.
I have been listening to a lot of podcasts lately. They have challenged me. They have shared content talking about stepping outside my comfort zone. I am working on a positivity manifesto. This is going to be the Kahuna Awesomeness Positivity Manifesto.
This living document is going to be my road map to living an awesome life. Is my life awesome, to me yes. To you, maybe not. But guess what, I am pretty okay with that. A friend told me a story this past week, one of the key phrases was this, “You do you, Boo!”.
This my be the first element of the Kahuna Awesomeness Positivity Manifesto.
Good morning Big Sexy people!
A couple weeks ago, the Kahuna’s visited an indoor water park resort. This place also had a wizard adventure for the kids. You know, you go around the resort with a wand and collect virtual things. Basically, four floors near the atrium of kids running around with plastic sticks thinking their wizards.
The kids founds other children their own age to go on this adventure with. Before they started exploring, we met the kids and their parents. Then, we let them go on this magical adventure.
The point of this post, adventures are a lot more fun with friends. The Kahuna Kid’s ran through out the wizard play area for hours. These kids had no idea who these kids were but they were brought together through this game. After an hour into the game, you would have thought they were friends for ever. And these kids interacted with other kids in a decent manner. There were some kids who were being mean, is happens. What did my kids do when faced with the mean kids? They moved on and didn’t let these idiots ruin a fun time.
We should be this open to new adventures with friends. Make plans to have lunch with someone other than eating alone. Find a friend to hit the gym at lunch time. Go for a walk or run. Call them up and say “Hey friend, let’s do something!”
Want to live a happier life, be more social. Get out and laugh more.
Tomorrow is Big Win Friday. I’d love to hear your big wins for the week.
Be Big Sexy!
I love you all!
