(laughs) This was a very interesting and never-before-read-or-heard-of story. You had me laughing through the entire thing. (Get this published in a ladies's magazine -- or an architectural magazine...)
Very funny essay - and as a man - I can completely relate. My father used to bore us to tears on trips, but he meant well. I'm sure I do the same thing to my kids.
Excellent writing! As the wife of an enginner for the past 33 years, I can really relate!!

Fun and well written! Great work.
This is terrific. And I learned some things along the way. I really enjoyed this read. Thanks!
Would you believe we have a grown son who does this to us?! He has always been the one to ask questions, but NOW he's the one who dissects everything from a very technical point of view! :-)
This was an enjoyable read.

How fun! Your story is so different and refreshing and one that many of us married girls can relate to in one way or the other.

Oh, this was WAY too funny! I loved the opening joke! As a homeschooling mother I find myself trying to micro-explain things to my children (students) when they ask questions. Then I find that they have lost interest because the answer is way too detailed for them! Similar? Yes? Made me think!!
This is a well structured article. From the title to the wrap up. You kept a consistent balance of humor and maintained a good pace. This would fit nicely in a Christian magazine. Great work and a well deserved win!

Hi Kathleen. I'm just preparing the new FaithWriters' Anthology and need a short (two to three sentences) bio piece to include in a new section for the book - "Meet Our Authors." The bio notes need to be written in the third person. Could you please send it to me via a Private Message? Thanks so much. Love, Deb (Challenge Coordinator)
