She didn't like to lie, but by the time she was six years old she'd already discovered that it was easier to selectively reduce her family tree rather than trying to explain why she was being raised by her grandmother. When speaking to adults and to peers, divulging details about the loss of her mother, father, or sister, simply sprouted too many questions. Quite often, it sprouted nothing short of blatant disbelief. One story was bad enough, but when all three were combined it wasn't uncommon to be accused of making it all up. At five years old, while she was at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital while her sister was receiving treatment for leukemia, Misty discovered her voice within for the first time. That same day, just moments after her sister was taken by the disease, out of survivor's guilt, she pushed that brief feeling of confidence down so far she'd forgotten there had even been a glimpse of it. It wasn't until twenty-five years later when she was on stage in front of three hundred people that she re-discovered her strengths. The stage, the mic; stand-up comedy opened the door for her, and allowed her to reclaim... herself.
