Enjoyed this slice of summer at Aunt Carol's place--you made her sound so genuine. This was a fun and entertaining read.

I felt like I was a visitor in the house with the MC. Good work.

Wonderful character study filled with a highly realistic sense of place.

Certainly a fun read that left me smiling.

What a great story about first impressions... and how inaccurate they sometimes turn out to be! Well done.
You fleshed out Aunt Carol so much that I'd like to visit her! What a delightful person! Big kudos on this entry!
Dialogue, dialect and story combine to make a story as sweet as the lime Kool-Aid mix. I liked the sense of environment you created and the insights into your MC thoughts. And the Aunt seemed very, very genuine.

Nice "light" read that felt authentic.
