I love, love, love Ed and his unique voice, and this change-of-pace entry in a week that's kind of a sugar overdose. Fan-TAS-tic!

A funny story. Great voice and character.
What a well-written, witty, creative take on the topic. I smiled as I read it. And laughed out loud at the last line. God Bless
Your characterization is excellent. I enjoyed the twists and turns in this story. Great job!

LOL -- " 'Anything shocking happen today? ' Being an electrician…" and "Martin had seriously over-patched himself." :) Your ending is "classic"… Love it!
This was a well written, fun read. I didn't see the ending coming. Good work.
Hello, my name is Karlene, and I am a sucker for a good romance. This is great, I especially love the surprise at the end- Marsha and Shirley are friends, I was hoping they would reconcile in the end. Thanks.
Oh this is such fun. I loved the subtle humor throughout. This stands out. A+
How clever to use all the different meetings to tell the changes in the character, with the last meeting being the cleverest of all! Great voice and characterization.

What a hoot! Enjoyed the MC and how real he was and the irony!
Wow, what a roller-coaster ride you put on the reader's emotions regarding "Ed", from disgust to pity to happiness and all within a 750 word limit! Great job. :)

This is FANtastic! Entertaining! Creative! Engaging! Love it from title to end, and Ed is someone I'd like to meet. ;) REally!
Great characterization and voice. Very different take on the topic. Loved the last line... very witty.
I always enjoy the voices that you present in your entries. I also love the twist with his wife at the end. Oh, and the last line is the best. :)

Great job, as always.

Gregory and I looked up some of your other entries after your recent correspondence. We loved this, and we both laughed out loud at the end! A brilliant blend of pathos, humour and hope.
This is just as good the second time around. Love the fun voice!
