Well-timed for post-Christmas recovery from all the food we have enjoyed. (I've personally gone on two diets simultaneously - because a single diet didn't include enough food!) Thanks for the fun in your story and the puns in your characters' names.

This was especially funny to me, I just recently purchased one of those garments. Hey, I'm trying to keep hope alive! Good job, very much on topic and VERY revelant.
You have a gift for humor. Don't you have a Baptist magazine to send this to? I love it.
I could see this so vividly! A hilarious fun read.

At the close I was hoping for more than a chorus burst; what a hoot if it had all hung out. Ow! Enjoyed this, as much as a man can, reading about women's fat. Colin

Oh, my goodness! Can I ever relate--this made my breathing tighten just reading it. Having poured myself into something similar, I can rightly attest that this story is absolutely true-to-life. Love it!

Chuckle,chuckle, I remember when those garments were called girdles plain and simple. Every name and description was well -a gut buster! worthy of a humor contest!

On reading this a second time, I'm wondering if the pastor preached from the Beatitudes; as one very appropriate text comes to mind: "The weak shall inherit the girth..." Congratulations on your win.

I'm a new 500 member, so I'm checking out the winners. Your piece is very clever. I love the character names. And your ending was on-point for the topic...and a little bit of a surprise. Great work!
I don't know how I missed this, but I was perusing some of your pieces and came across this one. I have tears running down my face from laughing and I need to hurry off to the bathroom. You are indeed brilliant!
I am new here and just learning my way around. I am so glad I found your article. This is very very funny and cute, and I enjoyed reading it.
Colorful, Imaginative. Realistic. Believable and easy to follow. Kept my interest.
Nicely done and congratulations again. The part about the pastors message being especially long was just great!
