This is fabulous! I love the contrast of child and teacher--how the innocence of the young girl is played against the no-nonsense of the adult who inevitably has lost some of their vivid imagination from youth. You captured a child's mind and quality perfectly--especially in the way that they tell stories :)even stories that are true! The irony of the last line, since you as the author did in fact create this story is brilliant and is a perfect ending! I thouroughly enjoyed your piece! Thank you.
Outlandish? Definitely! Helen, this is the best laugh I've had in a long time. I would love to see this as a mini film or a children's book. It's brilliant, simply brilliant :-) :-)

lovely:-) it got worse and worse.... or better and better and you kept the pace and the interest throughout.
lovely title lovely story and if it is not a winner then i will eat my hat unless the goat gets it first!!
It was a honey of an article. Great work Helen. Should win, it was fast paced and the repartee between the characters was wonderfully woven. It was a joy to read, I am still smiling.
You have a marvelous sense of humor. I was giggling throughout. Nice job!

Loved it from title to ending! I had no problem imagining the little girl as she told her tale and the teacher as she tried to keep her laughter under wraps. Keep up the good work!
