The Watercooler Auckland Issue 25.

Red solo cups in the bird-bath outside, broken glass in the shower, someone you don't know is rolling around on the couch as you walk through the hallway in the aftermath of a house party. On the kitchen bench you see it, cold sausage rolls, your one and only salvation. Cleaning up the mess is inevitable, however, whether you had a good time making it or not, isn't so much of a guarantee. This month's issue of The Watercooler, will bring to life stories about exactly that. The cringe, the laughs, the texts that just should not have been sent. All the things we discover in the aftermath of a terrible celebration.

Inspired by many well-known storytelling events and podcasts held worldwide (The Moth, This American Life), The Watercooler is a platform for people from all walks to tell stories both true and imagined. Storytellers are given a simple brief to share a story inspired by the month’s theme, whether based on real-life experiences or entirely fictional. Want to share your story?
