I could relate to the mother's active-imagination. Love your title. Funny story.

I got every bit of this story--and had to smile. I have a son in college, too, and I just had your MC's overactive imagination in overdrive this morning.

The conversation flowed well, the dialogue believable. Good job.
I liked the ending- hide the bleach!

Wonderful. Our son is away at boarding school and fortunately his laundry is done for him. Otherwise he's definitely capable of doing something very similar! Thanks for the smile.

I empathized with mom from the beginning - envisioning what the kid has been up to without parental supervision and no phone calls. Great voice for him - you caught the exasperated teen well. And the closing line - priceless. I'm still grinning.

Too funny! Loved the son's voice - as a recent college graduate, I empathized more with him than the mom, but excellent characterizations all around.
This story brought a smile. Anyone with a half-grown son will appreciate your apprehension at the beginning and your laughter at the end. Great writing.
