You may have noticed if you’ve read storytime that my traditional stories start with set phrases such as, “once up on the time before/in the Darkness”, “during the Darkness on the coast of Coricia”. I know other people have similar stock phrases. What are yours?
(Yes, “on the coast of Coricia” is where Sundsele folk stories that are kind of supposed to happen in an indefinite time or place, taken as mythological rather than true history, are supposed to happen. Sadly, coast of Coricia, while a nice vacation destination, does not quite live up the expectations this sets.)
