While it's a sweet concept, I felt this was more a flashback that belongs in a novel than an actual story in its own right. It's amusing, but where's the conflict? Where's the thing that needs to be over-come? Where's the evidence that what happened in the story changed things for the main character? It needs something more, I think.
