Oh, this is a pearler. On first reading I failed to take in the detail, but when I read the line about returning the bell in its original packaging I howled with laughter. Only on re-reading did I note how procrastination oozed from start to end. I think this is a very cleverly written entry indeed. And thanks for the belly laugh.
This was a fun read. I was pretty sure from the outset that it had the ring of truth to it, despite the liberties you took.
Do you suppose Danielle meant bell-y laugh? :D

Well, a-chord-ing to my lofty thoughts, this is a Britissue, and I foundrydress to the suppliers most liberty-ating. However, it seems the outcome warrenty-even worth the ding-dong it caused!

My favorite line, "If it were merely a lamp-shade, we could easily turn it around and conceal this fault..." All the procrastinations in this add to its hilarity! :) This has all the bells and whistles of a good entry. I'm clapper-ing loudly.

This is hilarious. I can tell you that I have already repeated this story to several people, so that should tell you how excellent it is.

Very creative and clever--and witty. Great job!
Great job, oh clever one!

Well, you've package-in a lot of detail and I bell-ieve you've cracked a winner, but I won't make a ding about it. Congratulaions!
Congratulations, Noel! Reading the comments is almost as much pun as reading the story. :)

Bravo! Too bad I didn't have you for a history teacher back in high school. I might have actually made the grade—it's quite exhilarating to learn something new while grinning like a cat on the nip in Cheshire England. Fine writing, entertaining and one I will remember. Laughter is good for many ailments, like solidifying facts in the memory.

Someone should have done a humorous piece on the topic of "congratulations," because I forgot to do so. Congrats on the well earned EC!
Noel, I cracked up reading this tale of travesty told in such a terrific manner.

My soul pealed with joy. This story rang true on so many levels.

Congratulations on your EC win and lifting my spirit.

Congratulations, Noel, on winning the 4th place EC award this week.

I couldn't believe this was based on a true story. I peeled with laughter after reading your story.

Your clever title was one of my favorite parts of your even more ingenious, fictionalized- nonfiction entry.
