i loved this one!!! i hope you are up on the winners board.
I never laughed so hard in my life over this entry. I truly enjoyed each sentence and the ending was fantastic. A very enjoyable read. Keep writing and with that sense of humor you will bring joy and laughter to many.
This is pure gold! You have an amazing writing gift, especially in one of my favourite genres - the humourous side of family life! Your descriptions are well thought out (I loved the digging through mash potatoes like a mini archaelogical dig, brilliant!) and enhance the readers' picture of the scenario. I'll be bookmarking this one to come back to many times. Really well done!
This was a delightful tale, I laughed at the first line, felt sorry for the father and his word tried.

I do have tiny red ink and I only mention it, because it is a pet peeve of mine, you said: If Mom succeeded in one thing it was getting Mark and I to do the dishes

It should be Mark and me. You wouldn't say if Mom succeeded ...getting I to do the dishes you'd say getting me to do...

Now that I'm done ranting about that little error, once again you did a great job with the characters and dialog. It was a fun read.:)
yay!! i agree with the judges. well done!!
This was indeed hilarious and delightful. Congratulations on placing #1.
Congratulations Sandra! I am thrilled that you won with this piece! Well done.
