With her trademark sarcasm and conversational style, Notaro makes forwarded emails from parents, wrestling out of a shirt in a dressing room and Ambien adventures all seem hilarious. See also her “Idiot Girl” titles.

I think if she has embellished it a bit, it's okay, because it's a story. Stories get like that. However, having been a city girl visiting a small town, I think it is all completely believable.

Finally, someone who appears to be even more stupid than I can be. I wasn’t nearly as entertained by Laurie’s exploits as some, mostly because I have a hard time believing anyone can be that unlucky that often. Either Notaro’s indulged in a wee bit of embellishment (not that there’s anything wrong with that, cuz we’ve all done it) or she completely deserves the title Idiot Girl.

Notaro is yet again in fine form. I think she might be my alter-ego.
