You really are the master at combining comedy with pathos - who wouldn't choke up a little at his innocence being the subject of others' mirth? And I loved the character - his naivete yet his wisdom shining through. Another great piece from this writer.

This was so cute from the very first paragraph. I giggled all the way through. I adore your character’s voice. The final paragraph brings the story to a completely unexpected yet delightful ending. To bring laughter to others is such a gift. Thanks for sharing yours with us. I loved it!
Now *this* is the way to tell a story. It was so much fun! Excellent.

I like the POV of this story and the ending was an interesting twist. Great job.
When I read the first few lines, I thought, "What in the world?" Then I realized that was the very essence of the story. Good job.
Again, stop amazng me, woman!
What a great read! I was raised where some folks talked like our hero, so I heard every word! Loved it! And I laughed out loud the whole way through. Loved the irony of a wedding reception in the bowling alley...

I could hear Buddy Ebsen narrating this wonderful story. I smiled through the whole thing. Thanks so much for giving me a smile today!

ohhh! I loved this! So fun and the ending was just great. I liked the 'tone' and the easy going personality of the MC. This definitely made my day and I love the touch of 'Lily'. Very, very well done! ^_^
