Crisp is at home recovering from her one shift as dishwasher at a local restaurant. It was a LOT more work than she was led to believe and she was alone in a basement for 8 1/2 hours. She's not going back (and I don't blame her). On to other plans and maybe back to WCC for another class?

More Measure for Measure.

Tuesday, June 5, 2018
