Very clever and engaging. Isn't youth just the worst and the best time? Thanks for a very enjoyable tale. I would have made the following two sentences.
I felt just like the egg trapped in a hen's delivery tube, I just couldn't get laid.

    Glad you enjoyed it. It was just a piece of nonsense that I wrote some months ago. Thank you

What a lovely and simplistic story you wrote. So natural, so intriguing about a subject so ,well not usual. I am glad you kept your head.
I enjoyed.

This is a light and funny piece! I enjoyed the ease of it. The fact that he's a virgin, looking for a "date", is pretty funny. And convincing. A good job on this short write. I enjoyed the air of it all.

    I'm delighted to know you accepted this piece for what it was, a light-hearted and irreverent look in a young man's development. I feel I should confess it is absolute fiction. I would though have loved a maiden aunt like the one quoted.

Strictly speaking, Bob, this is funny. I can just envision a boy having to make such an apology to a classroom of teenagers. That is the funniest part. And, it's funny that we can laugh at such topics.
Totally enjoyable entry in the contest.

    Glad you saw the humour in this piece. Fortunately it is total fiction. I would though have loved to have the guidance of a maiden aunt like the one in this write.

I won't share with you my sexual exploits for fear of reprisal from many angry fathers, or older brothers, Bob. But in my defence, I didn't know any better, I had some pretty rotten role models. Well don done, great and risque entry in this contest, good luck,

    Roy, I was always more scared of angry mothers and disappointed girls. To be deemed a 'dud stud' was never good for one's reputation or self-esteem. Thanks for reviewing this piece of my fictional past.

reply by royowen on 27-Sep-2018
    I didn't worry about reputation, in fact I remember hearing that father's forbade their daughters from seeing me. Heh heh. Don't know if it was true or not. Heh heh

    Thank you Bob. I let it loose occasionally. Most people refer to me as twisted, not funny. Glad you enjoyed it and thank for the terrific review

I did not count the words, but it looks right. In fact, this mumble is to generate 150 characters. The story is simply clean clear and well written, I see no changes at all.

    Thank you LIJ Red for taking the time to read and review this piece of sheer nonsense. Unfortunately, or maybe thankfully it's not biographical. The maiden aunt is a figment of my imagination, as is my school friend's sister.

Definitely a unique and original piece of flash fiction here, though our supreme court judge nominee has the same claim-haha. Who knows what is truth or fiction any more.

    He may have known my maiden aunt also. Wonder if she wrote a poem for the judge? Thanks for reading and reviewing my stupidity.

    Ha! He may have.

What an excellent read compiled with humor, near fact, and a story that many will relate to, from their younger years, very well done and best wishes for your competition****kahpot

    Thank you Kahpot but your review contained one error. It mentioned "near fact,' truth is the story and near fact weren't even distant neighbours. But it was intended to be fun.

reply by kahpot on 25-Sep-2018
    Sorry about that, I took that impression from your notes, my apologies****kahpot

reply by the author on 25-Sep-2018
    Sorry, my previous reply was written totally tongue in cheek. Your reply was great and much appreciated.

LOL! That is so funny! I loved it. That poem, it's classic! I'd love to have a maiden aunt with a sense of humour like that. I wonder if there are any around. Wherever this story came from, it was hilarious, and a brilliant contest entry. Good luck! :) Sandra xxx

    This review has made my day. Sadly, I must confess the story is completely untrue. My maiden aunt doesn't exist. And the class apology never took place, the dear old Marist Brothers had another form of punishment. The Principle's office and six cuts with the cane. Fun was another thing frowned upon.
    Thank you, Sandra for seeing the fun
