I loved the story. Even though there was a lot of telling, you did it in a vivid way. I could almost smell the smells. My heart aches for the cantankerous old fellow.

The accent was a little bit over the top for my tastes. I think it was hard to understand at times. It also made the MC seem not very smart, yet she used a word like empathy. I think if you'd toned it down just a tad, it would have been delightful. I also noticed sometimes you switched from past tense and to present and back again.

You definitely nailed the topic in a fresh (no pun intended) way. The compassion of the MC melted my heart and made me fall in love with both characters. Your message comes out clearly and is one I think most of us need to be reminded of from time to time. I truly enjoyed this delightful monologue from beginning to end.
