I liked this a lot--clever and sparkling dialog.

It threw me a bit when you tossed Mary and Martha into the mix, as "eat crow" is a very modern idiom. Perhaps if you made it a more generic transgression--the lesson would resonate with more readers?

All-dialog pieces are difficult to pull off, but you did a super job.
I love the way your piece was crafted entirely from dialogue. I will carry this concept of humble pie with me forever!

Well done.
I've had more than enough of my share of crow.
It does go down easier mixed with a healthy portion of forgiveness
The dialog is witty and real,
crow ..ew! Great job.
