The reason why we tell stories is because it gives us something to do when we are bored. You could go to the movies or watch something on your TV and those will be based on a story. People enjoy doing those things and sometimes they don’t even think about the story behind what they are watching. When you are watching or reading something that fascinates you, then that makes you want more of what that thing is. When we tell or listen to stories, it gives us something to do and if we enjoy what we are watching or listening to then it makes us want more of it.
