When Women Go Off-Duty.

I was reading an interview of David Sedaris in the October 2013 (I know) edition of Writer’s Digest and he mentioned a conversation he had with a woman at one of his book signings: “I heard on the radio that you were going to be here. Normally I take my bra off and it’s off […]
