Loved it. Poor Lucy -- I was biting my lip to the end wondering if she would get her full-blown tirade out before it was too late to reel it back in!

Well, somehow you got inside my head and read all my thoughts because you captured that self-righteous anger perfectly! LOL.
This was delivered with just the right tone. Even though I suspected the surprise ending, it was still a delicious read.

Good job, Well done, I, too, was worried that she would "blow it" as her anger grew. I know I probably would have.

I had a suspicion that might happen, but it was a delightful read anyway. Great characterizations!
Good story to encourage people to use self-control when our loved ones say or do something that doesn't go well. We can really feel stupid afterwards when we jump to conclusions or misunderstand each other.

Loved Lucy's character. However, I guess the older I get the less I'm wanting to celebrate my birthday. Good action and dialogue.
