Storyline

Brenda and Rhoda notice that Benny is out of sorts, off in his own world. Brenda learns that a recent incident is just the latest but perhaps most telling that he is invisible to most people, and thus feels unloved and unwanted by society. Brenda decides to do whatever she can to make Benny feel like he is a worthwhile human being. She decides to take the advice of one of her work colleagues and follow the tenets of a book called "How to Be a Different Woman in Every Room", which not only espouses being subservient to your man, but also doing so in a different but equally feminine persona for the tasks associated with every different room in one's house. So in addition to waiting on Benny hand and foot, Brenda also decides to wear different frilly clothing for these different personae. Rhoda voices to Brenda her hatred of what Brenda has become in trying to please Benny. Beyond dealing with Rhoda's displeasure, Brenda has to figure out if her tactics truly are making Benny feel loved ... Written by Huggo
