What a smart concept! I went from being thoroughly entertained at the idea, to a small pit in my stomach thinking about the anguish
a situation like this would cause, and how this could end horribly, to very happy with the ending! It almost makes me wish I was someone's fictitious heroine!

It's very well written, has great dialogue between the characters, and amazingly goofy and awesome details thrown in.

It's a very quick and entertaining read, so there's no reason to pass this one up!

Well constructed with some nice twists. As a writer I'm definitely chuckling. I do sometimes wonder what our characters might be thinking, particularly as they are forced to suffer through multiple revisions.

This was an amusing, quick read. I agree with a fellow reviewer that this reminded me of Alice in Wonderland with the strange, curious happenings.

A well written piece and there were a few clever turns of phrase that I enjoyed. Self-effacing and honest, this short story twists and turns with surrealistic non-sequiturs (I imagine watching Salvador Dali paint must have been a bit like this!) Cheers!

I liked this very much. It reminded me of an old Bugs Buuny cartoon ( sorry if that offends), where Daffy Duck goes from one setting and job to another - cowboy, pilot. It turns out Bugs was creating him as the story went along.
Nicely written. Interesting British terms: pulled tongues. The American version is 'stuck his tongue out'. Enjoyable...

Most enjoyable, I love this type of wacky humour-Could well be a scene from Alice in Wonderland.
