This is excellent! You've done a terrific job with the names of your characters (I'm not even going to ask how long it took you to come up with them all.) A sad but true warning wrapped in a clever package. One little slip I caught: "shakin': should be "shackin'" — this was a really good take on the theme.
This was a story that really held one's interest, and I wondered where it was when we wrote about gossip? Very well done and well named. Loved it!
Loved this. And yes, the telephone and the prayer chain are such great tools for gossip. You sure brought it all out in the light. Funny and thought-provoking. Great job!
The telephone is a great tool where people can communicate and pray together even when far apart if used correctly. This story would make a good piece for the topic on gossip/rumors as well. A good reminder on how we ought always to accurately handle our words in truth when conveying messages.
I enjoyed reading this article. Good job! :)
Congratulations on an EC for a great job with this poem. The title was perfect to tell the story.
Congratulations on your EC! This was a delight to read. I'll never know how you come up withsuch perfect names but I laughed heartily at them. The sad part of this story is that in many churches a prayer chain is nothing but an excuse to gossip. Great message.
I had to laugh at myself...I thought the title was a foreign language and didn't get it until I was through with the story. Oh boy, Uben Hadd sure held true for me. Congratulations on your well-deserved recognition. I thoroughly enjoyed this story from start to finish. I laughed out loud several times.
Mona, I always love reading your creative stories. This one is great [with a super message]. Congratulations on your Editor's Choice award.
