Hi, this is Monica McCormick I was (your) "Towel Lady"  a couple of months ago (at Christian Academy... Michelle Hargreaves was my teacher) I just wanted to thank you for letting me perform your work on such short notice. It was so much fun! The audience really loved it. People still come up to me and talk about that monologue.  You are a wonderful writer ( I look forward to the next part), and I just wanted to let you know it's fine with me if you put my performance on your website...   

Monica was referring to a DVD filmed by Holly Hopkins, which will hopefully be posted by the end of June 2006.
