I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for that check—sure sounds like a tall tale to me! Great creativity.
Hehe. Loved this read - great job with the voice. All fun!
This was fun, creative, descriptive and held my interest all the way through. Since I've only met one other person in my entire life with the name Charla, I found that interesting too. Thanks for this light-hearted piece.
You are a master of comedy. This was a delightful read.
wow, you managed to take a simple letter and make it masterful writing. Not to mention extremely entertaining.
This is hilarious! The descriptions are so vivid I felt I was watching it unfold. Great voice in the piece, too.
Ha! I needed this. Very entertaining and well presented. God bless.

BettyDee, only you could have written something like this. It is dripping with your style. I love it!
"By that time I was as mad as a soaped-up cat, so I grabbed Buzz’s collar and asked him what he was going to do about my broke bridge. He said he was moved by the Holy Spirit and he couldn’t be responsible."
