This is so entertaining and clever. I love the dialogue. Well done.
Interesting and enjoyable read- congrats on the EC 2nd Place ranking.
The dialogue in this is so well done! Congratulations on well-deserved win!
Congratulations, Ann, on your 2nd place EC. I thoroughly enjoyed your story with its humorous and believable dialogue.I'm curious - did the 11 day calendar change happen, and if so when? I'm guessing this is based on a true historical event.
I was just reading about King Hezekiah's request for proof of his healing (I think) and the shadow moving back 10 (I think)places...anyway your spectacular story with its fabulously realistic word picture dialogue reminded me of that. If you based it on a true 'Act' I wonder if it has roots in the God's setting time in reverse in Isaiah (I think)--yes I'm snuggled in and too lazy to move and retrieve my Bible.
Ann, Congratulations on your 2nd place EC award. The dialect and dialogue were fabulous. It was a step back in history.
Intriguing bit of history. I read up about the switch of times because of the miscalculation of leap years. The United States lost 11 days, but other counties varied by when they decided to switch.
