A marvelous little tale with a cute twist at the end. I appreciated the author's attention to the niceties of good writing mechanics so that nothing distracted from my enjoyment of the story.
I would like to see this author rework this story so that the conflict increases more smoothly and is not resolved quite so easily. This one thing would make a great story into an easy short-story award winner.
Many thanks to this author for the enjoyment I derived from his considerable effort.
