Honor your Mother and Father. Never take the Lord’s name in vain. Leave room for the holy spirit. Be a good little girl because God is always watching. Don’t ask questions about things that don’t concern you. What’s that strange feeling in my body? Keep your hands to yourself. Where do babies come from? You’ll learn about it someday. Cut to someday. Bless This Mess is a one woman show chronicling the hilariously messy journey of becoming a woman through the veil of a strict Catholic upbringing.
