Comments in my inbox! Mar 16, 2012

Here's what some other audience members had to say about last night's opening of Michelle Ellsworth's Phone Homer:

What Just Happened?!?! The Transformative Power of Michelle Ellsworth Mar 16, 2012

Last week, my boyfriend decided that we should take a break.  He did so without establishing any parameters for said break.  He is apt, as most men are, to go to his metaphoric cave and stoically assess his problems.  Women, on the other hand, are often impetuous information-gatherers in times of stress.
