Enjoyable story. The rising tension of actions happening, reflected the rising tension felt by the son as things seemed to escalate out of control. I laughed out loud near the end, rewarded for my reading.
Haha. You have elderly ethnic parents nailed. God bless them. A great short!
That was fun to read!
After a long time, a tale that warms the heart, makes me laugh, and leaves a tear in the eye for the universal truths about relationships. Thank you for writing it and sharing it.
Brought back many fond memories of visiting with my parents, now deceased. Kevin, your narrative was so very real to me that I once more felt I was visiting in my parents' past. Thank you!
As a serious short story writer, I am delighted to say that this is a wonderful story. It is vivid, rhythmic, authentic, funny, and poignant, with a disciplined, focused structure. Bravo! I'm envious, but also inspired.
You have all elderly parents nailed. I laughed out loud the whole way through. What a gift. We want more! Thank you for making my day.
