Good job with the topic. Good story clearly showing the "disagreement/agreement" throughout.

Nicely done. God Bless~

OOOhh I like this the twist at the end was great. I bet you are wishing you could use this for this week's employment topic? :)

But it fits the disagreement one really well. The message is fantastic and how true-- if we aren't willing to support our family...

The only thing I wondered is how did the boss find out about Bryant's plan-- was that Craig's "boring proposal"? I think the word limit might have hampered you some, but I still enjoyed the story and think you did a great job on it.

What a dose of humble pie to her ego. I could connect with the characters and felt the cold tension between them. I certainly didn't expect the plot twist and wholeheartedly thought she would use her husband's idea for her presentation. You did a fine job demonstrating how driven people often miss opportunities right before them - if only they'd get out of their egos. Nice work.

I really disliked the wretched Eileen. That tells me you did a very good job. ;)

Ebony, you did it! I'm so proud of you.

Your story is very good! You took us to the edge of our seats, then accomplished a moral lesson, all the while making us readers very disappointed in Eileen's attitude. I came away thinking, "If only Eileen had . . ."

Congratulations!
