I wrote “Run Upstairs With Plates” as part of a book I was attempting to write in 2003 about my early childhood. The project was abandoned after I realized that I didn’t have very many lighthearted stories to write. This one takes place in the early 1980s and was the moment when I realized that my family was strange.
I read “Run Upstairs With Plates” in episode 26 of Words of Jen.
