What a fascinating story and how well you tell it. Everything revealed is done in such an interesting manner.

I am learning and growing every day (except from 6-7 PM, five days a week when I watch the re-runs of "The Big Bang Theory"). This tells me much about you.LOL.

"No one never mentioned it,>> Is this a double negative? should it be
No one ever mentioned it?

Congratulations on your 2nd prize!

    No one never mentioned it! Whaaaat? I think I know better than that (though I have been studying Spanish for a year). Let me go back and check it out. Thanks for the heads up!

This is an interesting story. The writing is good. Definitely it deserves to be recognized as such. I am impressed how the author describes the life of Clarence. Using his testicles as an outstanding symbol of his appearance is interested. He even has a medical explanation. That is totally amazing.

    Well, I wouldn't want to take my medical advice into surgery, but I did research it for the story. I'm just happy you enjoyed it..

I'm sorry I missed the vote, too many real life issues going down, but kudos on your second place win. This is such a guy write - reveling in things that make females squirm, I can imagine the devilish glint in your eye as you penned it. A most entertaining twist to the familiar grudging admiration of " you've got balls".

I'm in awe of your talent, Jay. A story to remember.

Stay safe

Blessings Julia

    Well, Julia, a six makes up for it. That and your thoughts about my writing. I have such admiration for your use of words. So your comments have even more value to me.

    Thank you Jay. Looking forward to more posts from you.

    Thank you, Equestrik. I felt fortunate it was put in the story of the month competition.

Okay, I'll confess I didn't want to like this story. I mean...Tarot and giant testicles....ice cream tinged with dog slime... not real palatable. What was endearing is your conversational tone, and the manner in which you laid out your story. You've caught me before with your wickedly wry bit of sardonic wit and darn it if I'm not hooked again!--Karenina

The easy conversational style of this struck me as being an updated version of Henry Fielding's 'Dear Reader' asides in Tom Jones, with the author sharing a joke directly with the reader. It works excellently well. Your sharp but understated humour is a real delight.

    Thanks, Tony. To be compared with Fielding! That's quite an honor. I appreciate your eyes on it. OMG, I just noticed the 6 stars. A double thanks.

Very interesting story! It got my vote for the story of the month. I'm glad you didn't start out with the big elephants on the stool or I may have skipped it. I admire people like Clarence, the ones that do not have a bother in the world, just carrying on with how they want to live. I like the description of the scratches from the initiation and Clarence's spoon test. Although it says "he would pass the spoon to us" but the narrator normally went to see him alone. Maybe he was the only one that got the spoon test. I enjoyed this a lot!

    Haha, no it wasn't a story about the big elephants, yet the story wouldn't have been complete without it. Thanks, Krystal for your kind words and for the vote.

That was pretty cool. Interesting stuff. You have to be from one end of the coast or another. Haight?
This is funny. And true, I take it. Reminded me big balls by AC/DC.lol..how you knew, one can only guess.
This had me laughing outloud in places. Its absurdity and depth. There's knowledge here ill probably leave to the iniated. I gave it 6 for humor, insight, courage of Pelotas Grande. Ha.

Wow. I love this story, and especially its structure. So many twists and bends, much like Clarence's shed that leaned in a number of directions.
I particularly like your listing of grist-for-the- writer's-mill life events in the aptly named "Testicularity and the Artist."
Good luck in the contest.

LOL! Did you eat the ice cream? I didn't see any typos. Too engrossed in reading. What a funny story and I could picture his house, his ice cream, and his testicles so easily from your writing.


 Comment Written 13-Nov-2020



reply by the author on 13-Nov-2020
    No, not the ice cream, but I did swallow the strand of my brand-new mother-in-law's hair I watched fall on the forkful of spaghetti I was just then putting in my mouth. I so wanted to impress her on that special dinner that I was the right one for her daughter.

    Those testicles I'll be forever trying to un-envision.

    Thank you so much for your words and the tasty six.
