“Listen, Frank!” is about getting hit at work, when I was in my twenties and the one hundred percent instinctual response I had. “Caught, Caught in the Web of His Own Making” is about confronting an arrogant, obnoxious, and condescending professor about his mistreatment of a tenth century, female playwright, Hrotsvitha. “Excruciating Pain” is about the worse pain I’ve ever experienced, above and beyond a Traumatic Brain Injury, which I don’t remember. “Adventures in Sailing” is about a trip onto Lake Superior, when all did not go well. “Intimate Conversations” are unexpected and very intimate conversations that I as a lesbian woman have had with straight male friends. I will either shorten the stories or the audience might help me select the stories they most want to hear! As with my two other story events, I will be wearing pajamas and I encourage audience members to do the same! What to wear? What to wear? That is the question! So many options! So little time!
