This one is cute! And it has a great storyline....I'm definitely a sucker for a romance....Nice work.
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!
Love the ending, and Ed's voice. Very unique entry for this topic. Great writing.
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.
Great characterization and suberb ending. EXCELLENT!
What a fun read! Well told, great pace, and a surprise ending too :)
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. :)
I like how you brought this full-circle. Also love your ending. Good 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!
