Just LOVE the last paragraph, and the whole premise of this. There were a few places here and there where I felt like you were telling a bit too much rather than showing, but I loved Anthony, and you did a fine job with the teacher and her "dilemna." Fun stuff.
You "thread" your reader along, skillfully, the same way Anthony did his teacher. Very clever!

This was funny. If only I had been as clever in school!
Very unique take on sin and evil. Who can we laugh at if we can't laugh at ourselves?

Hilarious! I loved the teacher's dilemna and young Anthony's argument. Very funny, particularly the irony at the end about carpentry... I can just hear what he would say about that and why it is good! :)

Oh my, I've had students just like Anthony, could talk their way outta anything--I LOVED this!

VERY imaginative! Well written, too. No brick, indeed! Reminds me of another silly person I know! I thought that this showed great creativity. I'd never seen it that way. Now I can blame Adam and Eve for sewing.....just one more way to bring us anguish and pain. Til the garden to eek out a living, pain in childbirth, and, here, for good measure....take this treadle sewing machine with ye and be gone, you little sew and sews!

Well, Sue . . . you always give us something to think about. This was no exception--very entertaining. Quite a unique take on the topic. I love how your mind works.
Heehee, how fun! I like the character of Young Anthony. Very good definition of 'sewing'. ^_^
