Haha! I love the surprise ending! Who's afraid of an electric razor? Some people unfortunately cannot "take" or "accept" a joke. Sigh, to be humour impaired must be blissful, eh? The quick-witted do live dangerously at times. I liked the pace of this story and its many jokes.

Review of Misty

I love this! My youngest grandgiggle purposely feeds her Boston terrier. Yes, many a dog is protective and overly-obsessed with their "round thing." They will chase it forever never tiring of that chase. Wouldn't it be grand to have this dog's energy and enthusiasm?

Well done! This is hilarious. Now, I can pity my own hard-working vacuum cleaner.I love how you stress this gadget's stress. The rhyme is wonderful. Who knew it would or could gag on mouthfuls of dust? I dare say all of our homes need attention "full of dirt I dare not mention."

Haha! Imagine poor Mr. Spielberg besieged by script ideas. The concepts are not always original.Why do dentists insist upon nattering when we cannot possibly reply? They may love the sound of their own voices. There are a few areas to fix up in this piece, but it's a great read. The time should have a ':' between the 10 and the 30.There are a few 'I' not capitalized. I believe a word is missing where you wrote" Oh. Hmm. your head up..." "Now now, we are almost done. moment." Is there a word missing here, too? I love how diplomatic the famous director is when replying.

Review of Talking Heads  
Review by SandraLynn
Rated: E | (5.0)
This is delightful and imaginative, a pleasure to read. I love the final line, "dandelions mature so quickly." That is quite a philosophical garden. They don't talk much because "everything has been discussed before." And these particular blooms are law-abiding, too, it's a wonder. Great use of the riot cliché!

This is fantastic! You speak of and with a virgin pirate. I love how you cautioned the ol' man he could drop the accent, but he liked it 'cause it kept him in character. This is the stuff of legends, they are created and grow via imagination. Is there any truth/proof to them? You describe this "pirate's" training as if he were a rookie fireman. Ah, no hard won glory to the peg leg either.

Review of The Crown  
Review by SandraLynn
Rated: E | (4.5)
What a glorious piece of writing to end this wonderful challenge. Very creative to include your characters in the conversation. The stories, their plots, their characters, their language, their actions/reactions all resonate with us. We carry them with us. And, yes, now what do we do? Some of my ideas kept me from sleep. too.

Review of Getting Lucky  
Review by SandraLynn
Rated: 18+ | (5.0)
Haha and gasp! Both George and I were caught up in his big moment and then blindsided. We didn't anticipate this ending. You lay out the day-to-day drudgery well. George expects nothing more. His bright spots are stolen moments of voyeurism. I like this story! Oh, poor George. He waited a lifetime to hear this invitation. "Shall we get started?"

Review of Light  
Review by SandraLynn
Rated: E | (4.0)
Hi Hannah and welcome to WDC! Thank goodness for light, bringer of peace, allayer of pain, banisher of misery, and introducer to sight. We travel down a good many tunnels, don't we? Some are dark and represent the unknown. Writing is like this. We cannot always see where we are headed or what awaits us. Keep walking towards the light.

Hi and welcome to WDC! I too like to read and write poetry. It's a chance to play with words and create memorable images. A smile does indeed hide many emotions, not all pleasant. It can win, or deceive. It may hurt. It may cut. Keep up expressing yourself.

Review of Officially Yours  
Review by SandraLynn
Rated: 13+ | N/A (Review only item.)
Great story! This would be a creative solution to senior benefits especially healthcare. Bureaucracy must be so discouraging to some. I like this spunky woman! Sadly, some people believe any information generated by a computer. Thanks for the chuckles!

This had me laughing! Oh, the trials and tribulations of a new super hero. Who woulda thunk it.Clothing, shmoling… she got caught up in the immediacy of the situation. It's understandable. I love how the officer refers to our heroine as everything but her chosen moniker. Haha, Lady Parallelogram!!! Calling her Miss Paradox was more like it; the two of them were confused. Well done!

Pardon my laughter at your gadget woes. It is rather frustrating that our appliances work until they inexplicably do not. What's with that?? I love your diabolical plots re the Roomba! If only we could discipline our electronics and force them to reconsider their atrocious behaviour. Oh, we'd be in a world of trouble if legislation existed for our poor, misunderstood gadgets. Thanks for the laughs! Ramps for ailing Roombas....haha!

I love this! Yes, I read this aloud to further enjoy the outrageous accent.I suppose a British accent seems posh to advertisers? Years ago, I attended my father-in-law's eightieth birthday party. He's from the Bath area in England and his second wife hails from London. Their accents and word phrases create comedy, but at the party I heard a smorgasbord of accents. The good-natured rivalry amongst the "southies" and the "northies" sure made me laugh. Britain is home to many dialects and, oh, wow, insane slang!

Review of Solid as Ice  
Review by SandraLynn
Rated: E | (4.0)
Wow! This is an original twist on the prompt. I cannot imagine becoming an ice cube, or consenting to cryogenics. Perhaps, one day this will be feasible. Hmmm, what would I do with my life in a do-over?

Review of Frozen

You've expressed heartache beautifully. I suppose it's the human condition to suppress emotion in order to protect one's self. Yes, emotions can be frozen.

Review of Freeze Frame  
Review by SandraLynn
Rated: E | (5.0)
I really like the premise of this tale. You included so many types of 'frozen'. I cannot fathom a skate-a-thon especially one outside in the harsh elements. My hubby is a former competitive skater, but he accomplished his feats in the controlled environment of arenas. Alas, I would not be his ideal partner. My feet and I struggle to walk; ice skating is beyond our capability. Here, where I reside in Canada, I'm forced to bundle up against the inexorable chill. It is feasible to not feel the touch of a mittened hand in mine.

Review of Coffee Strike!  
Review by SandraLynn
Rated: E | (4.0)
I feel this Keurig's pain. No, it must not be pleasant at all to be jolted, er, um, electrocuted every single morning! It does sound like this coffee maker has been taken for granted for far too long. This is well-written, bravo! Imagine if our loyal appliances did plot to revolt.

Wow, this is one tough, desperate, and determined tooth fairy. No magic fairy dust sprinkled here. I like this new take on a classic. Great descriptions, too. Hmmm, should I be avoiding dark alleys now? Congratulations, you deserve the first place for this piece.

Damn! A surprise ending that does not favour Mick. Ah, death is a bummer. We presume the dog is oblivious to his pending demise. Saying good bye is a heartache. Your dialogue touches upon loss and loneliness, very poignant. Great writing!

Review of oldheads  
Review by SandraLynn
Rated: 18+ | (4.5)
Wow, a dramatic twist! Is this the sad fact for some parks? I cannot comprehend a shooting , or a mugging for that matter. I love the banter between these two characters. They personify curmudgeonly. I like the one old guy describing his "vintage allure." He's still breathing and full of life at that point. Even after being shot, he blusters. The dialogue is compelling. Great writing!

Review of Ian and Bill  
Review by SandraLynn
Rated: ASR | (4.5)
I love this dialogue! Two old farts bond over their similar life histories. I imagine they'd need their senses of humour to survive their large families. Your dialogue is realistic. I not only strike up a conversation with a stranger, I see and hear other people do it, too.I find no fault with your writing.

Hi Ray! Ah, I too have known the love/attention/obsession of a cat. They really seem to stare into our souls, don't they? I love the feelings you awake with this poem. There's nothing quite like a contented cat cuddling and purring. I like the repetition of your line, " the look of love in her eyes." Great writing! Oh, and welcome back to WDC.

Review of Clueless  
Review by SandraLynn
Rated: 13+ | (4.5)
I love this! What a great way for a farmer to make money! No headaches whatsoever. Hmmm, money in feeding bugs instead of discouraging them. I suppose the corpses are dropping for the flies, not dropping like flies. Haha! I just thought of the crop rotation. I know I for one would not roam those fields. Great writing!
