HAHAHA... too funny! Sounds like something I would do! Very well written and entertaining.
Your entry is very entertaining...and probably hits home to a lot of us. :) I love the "We're going to starve" proclamation. And the "neat and simple" section, "My problem was that I had thought we’d defined our roles from the start. He worked. I spent...He mowed the yard. I built planters he had to go around." The Turkey vs Crow Thanksgiving Dinner was super cute. Very nice work.
Heehee! I didn't see that ending coming with throwing the turkey out, I thought the stove would explode or something. lol. I loved the MC in this-and the different between the husband at first and then later. ^_^
Wonderful story and written right on!
Wonderful voice--love the wit.
Too funny! This was a great story. I just loved the humour... "Shields up! Battle stations!" and the bird still flapping its wings the next afternoon. Well done!
I like all the clipped sentences in this piece, especially:
"I invited the whole family over.
From both sides. " (Aaargh! LOL!)
The pacing and humor kept me engaged throughout. I like this.
Wonderful take on the topic. I'm glad my first bird came out ok. If this is a true sharing I really appreciate the candiness of this piece.
Your title was great, and the first line pulled me right into the story. Very well paced and well written throughout. I enjoyed it tremendously!
Great job! So funny and I can relate!
