What a fabulous story! How delicately you have wrapped very deep and powerful emotion into a wonderful story with an incredibly funny twist at the end. How I admire you!
Wow! That was funny, and the ending explained the staring he and Gonzo shared. I like how you weaved in the details, but started with this curious exchange between man and bird. Very cool.
A well-written, funny, funny story.
Great story. Especially like the ending!
