I’d like to be clear, Michelle isn’t actually based on a certain person I know.  A lot of the people in this comic actually are, but Michelle is the only one who isn’t.  I don’t think I’ve known someone to be this weirdly complex like Michelle, where sometimes she’s smart, but other times she’s completely a ditz.  It’s a little difficult, since I can’t really judge on how far I can stretch Michelle’s character without breaking it.
