Very entertaining!

I had to read it a few times to get everything clear as to who was who and what was happening, but I think it's an "across the pond" thing--your style is just very British, as it should be!

I enjoyed this, very much.
I agree this required a twice read to get the point. But once gotten it is quite entertaining. Good job.
I got it the first time, and have to admit to laughing out loud at least a couple of times. Having had a parakeet once as a pet, I fully identified with the line about bashing a bird's brain into a mirror. And could just see the cogs turning in the old pastor's head when the bird revealed Nan's little secret at the end. Great story.
