Funny entry!

I'm drinking coffee as I read this. :) I had to smile at the changes to her life and her reaction to them. (and loved that she wanted to be supportive if he did write). I hope Joe doesn't give up. I enjoyed this!
Such a realistic slice of life, and told so well! With retirement not too far down the road for my own husband, I could envision myself in your shoes - what an adjustment! Kudos to you for being an encouraging wife and, like Beth said, I hope Joe tries again. Writing is not for the faint of heart! Great read.
Glad to see you back and writing; and congratulations on your EC with this wonderful submission.

Angela, this is so fresh and interesting. Both characters are endearing. On topic and from an out-of-box perspective.
Just love it.

Congratulations on your EC, Angela. You captured the couple's interaction as sweet and fun. I liked the different angle - an MC who wasn't meant to be writing. Great job!

My husband just retired and it's quite an adjustment. You covered this transition in a funny, original way. Loved it!
