Super story! I love the "temporary loser" title—have to remember that one for future reference.

Well done.

This was the best therapy I have had in AGES! Why.. my hubby is also quite a loser.. and now I feel at home.. If this was true, I do hope you found your ring.. lots of clever funny lines.. kept me engaged and laughing.. are you an engineer? or is this really a woman writing?? I have to wait and see...

Hehe - great voice! Some great laughs throughout this. Love the ending especially.
My husband is a loser as well. (And I mean that in the kindness of ways!) Great story. This made me smile!
A very charming entry. It made me laugh, because I lose stuff like this all the time. Very deserving of the top honors that it received. Loved the ending!
Oh my goodness, is this so funny and so relateable. Unfortunately I'm usually the one who loses things and I am actually still trying to find the band that one adorned my finger.
The only landfills in my story are a few partially cluttered rooms screaming," Spring Clean me please.":0) This piecejust flowed and I loved the descriptions and expressions of the little daughter, reminded me of our 7 yr old when she was just a tad smaller. So cute! Very nicely done. Congrats on 1st place!:0) God bless. Janice
This is great writing, a very enjoyable story to read. Congratulations on being "first."

This sounds so familiar!Congrats! When reading your story, your voice reminds me of Nicholas Sparks (I'm a big fan!).
This is hilarious and I can relate. Congratulations on your well deserved first place win.

Congratulations on your 1st place. This is so typical. Love the voice, and great job with the topic.
This was a charming story, I loved it! Congrats on your win, it is well deserved. =)
I thought it was starting a bit slowly, but it snowballed quickly. The ending completely blind-sided me. Congratulations!
I had to share your entry with my own live-in temporary loser. He got a good laugh out of it too. Wonderful writing. Congratulations on your well-deserved 1st place!

What a hook; I had to know what happened. Fantastic job of tying different elements together into a great story. You wove every detail together so well, I had to read it again. Congrats on your first place EC!
Congratulations! I loved the humour in this piece. PS: I, too, have searched through garbage...although not on quite so grand a scale :)
