Hi Lee, Well, I've said it before and again I say you tell a good tale. It's not what you say it's the way that you say it LOL. I love your after-thought '............ . . . and bath night' - I remember those. As for this being a true story, I think you might be pushing it a bit - 'My mother's recollections may differ from mine--in one or two insignificant areas.' LOL! I'm sure they do. But Good Luck with this real amusing story. Dorothy

    Thank you, Dorothy. Indeed, it's always the way you say it--especially when you're writing about housework. Your doubts notwithstanding, this is a true story--varnished by nothing more than my ability to make better sense of it today than I could at the time. My mother's recollections might stand her in a better light, that's all. Glad you enjoyed. Thanks again. Peace, Lee

    Hi Lee, what a sweet reply to my review. to be sure you have embellished the story and made it so readable, but I like the sound of your mother - remember she brought you up well and made you what you are today. D

reply by the author on 16-Dec-2018
    Yes, the sound of my mother was angelic. But you never stood in the shadow of her raised evil eyebrow!

    Glad you enjoyed, Dorothy. Lee

You are a great story teller Lee. We were lucky. Mom made us think it was an Honor to wash the dishes or do other household tasks. I was always Happy to help rearrange the furniture and vacuum the corners. I felt so grown up.
Enjoyed as usual. Nancy:)

    Thank you, Nancy. My mother was not gifted in the art of cajoling. I'm guessing I inherited my distain for housework from her. Kids pick up on those things. Thanks again. Peace, Lee

I think my childhood was a little better than yours Lee, I don't doubt you for a minute mind you, but then again. That's the trouble with mums, they don't really put up with our gunk, nor are they impressed.by our clever rhetoric either. And, of course favour sisters over us guys, well done, I'm impressed with your 'language' well dine, good luck, blessings, Roy

    Thanks, Roy. My childhood wasn't bad. But when writing through the eyes of a child, even the mundane is seen through melodramatic lenses. I'm delighted you enjoyed. Peace, Lee

reply by royowen on 16-Dec-2018
    I think you probably had it better too, you just didn't appreciate. My sweet elder daughter was told by her eldest son, she was the world's meanest mummy, which is extremely doubtful, heh heh.

reply by the author on 16-Dec-2018
    Oh, I get it, Roy. Kids are dramatic creatures. When the drama becomes comedy, there's healing afoot.

    You're right Lee,

I was reading a remarkable true story on FanStory not long ago, and I remember thinking, "Wow, these writers have experiences to draw from. They have had incredible things to write about." I mean really amazing stories. My life has been so boring. I had nothing to write so I did not enter.
You, on the other hand, write an award winning story on housework. I laughed during the entire story. Your mother is a great topic. I remember another article that you did on her cooking. She deserves an entire book.
Thanks for making me smile today.
Oh, thanks for the note on the blind venetian. I was wondering. That's funny.

    Thanks so much, Debbie. Oh, no one's life is boring. If household chores can be made interesting, what can't? If your life lacks drama, look for the comedic--everything is funny when you pull its pants down! We have have stories, Debbie. Tell us one. Glad you enjoyed. Peace, Lee

What're you telling, my life story? I'm a girl, it isn't a girl thing, it's an 'older' thing. The eldest gets all the damn' breaks, lol.

I died laughing over farting in a jar, and your Mom's superpowers. Hilariously told, great fun as always. I bet your Mom could tell some tales.

    Thanks so much, Emma. My sister was the middle child--but the only girl. She skated. To this day she teases me about all the crap she got away with. Farting in a jar is no laughing matter! Glad you enjoyed, Emma. Peace, Lee
