First of all, I couldn’t resist a story with your title. I enjoyed a few laughs reading about your deciphering your mother’s written words in such a timely manner. The paragraph about your father’s job was also very interesting. Sounds like a dream job for a writer. And what an awesome keepsake you have of his work.
I loved your humor and poignancy in this piece. What a wonderful walk through your love affair. I enjoyed the trip!
I loved it! I imagine you also have several humor pieces tucked away in another cigar box somewhere.
Good job!
Love the humor and that grandmother could understand gibberish...delightful piece!
You have some adorable childhood memories in this one. Because there were a few in one piece, it disrupted the flow to jump from one to the other without making something in particular about reading the theme. I think I'd revamp it and focus on where reading took your imagination, or else on how it connected you to family to sharpen it.
Thanks for the sweet tales.
I enjoyed this article. You gave us a walk through in a humorous way of your early life and love of words and you painted this with love not only for words but for your family.
