Very funny. I'm glad they're not my kids; they wouldn't be for very long. I loved the tape on the door.
I truly enjoyed this anyone who knows there's a difference between sardonic and sarcastic is top in my book. But what the kids really might have been was facetious! Unless the daughter meant to be mean and not just funny then she was sarcastic. This would be perfect for a preteen magazine I love it when kids stories help them learn new words. Your characters were a delight and it almost feels like your could have been peeking in my window a few years back.

From a family of practical jokers, I particularly liked this. Even the teenagers...sounds like my 5 several years ago! God bless!
Congratulations on your 'Highly Commended' win.

Congratulations on your placing, and on portraying a clear slice of life (or of imminent death) in a family of teenagers. Insanity is hereditary - you get it from your kids!
