I think I'm confused - why did Annie give him a thumbs-up? I thought she was disenchanted with him. But I like this story (my husband is studying to be a pastor).

WoW! How entertaining! I love this style of writing. Humerous and such insight! I like the, "how someone would look at a walking corpse" LOL I think the crazy ol' woman smiled and gave him the thumbs up because . . . she was crazy!! I wished I had written this. I really liked it. And what a GRAND message!!!!!

On of my favs, but I too am a little surprized at Annie's change of heart. Just maybe we didnt' judge her right, either, eh? Great job here!

You put a lot of detail in 750 words for sure and did it with humor and a truth that should make us all think about how we treat people or react around them. May we be real. Excellent!

Just wonderful! So lighthearted and deep and thought-provoking - all at once!! Great analogy! Love the dialogue too!

Fantastic! I loved this! Had me laughing out loud on several occasions. Your message is "hard-hitting" but so right on!

"Crazy Annie"-I don't think so.

This was fun because I remember a Crazy Annie from my days with an office at the senior center. She always had something fresh to say, usually about my posture and my faith, but when she met my fiance, he pegged her much the same way. This was engaging, you have a gift of bringing characters to life in such a way that they give the reader a gift of remembering the lesson long after the story is closed.
