And the moral is it is not the cover that matters it is the book. In the case of Percy, he is a book not worth reading. This is well conceived and well written.

Poor fellow - weak tea and limp toast. How does he survive. Actually I do wonder if many labor under that kind of umbrella. Being non-existent - almost disappearing into the woodwork.
Good story.

Hey G Man. I enjoyed reading this one a lot. The demeanor of Percy the IX was excellently described. I think I know someone just like him. One thing I learned for sure is his father's name is Percy Claptrap-Frugelbottom VIII. Funny story. Robert

Percy Claptrap-Frugelbottom IX - what a name to encapsulate the essence of the fellow! Even his mineral water lacked fizz! The moral of this story is just the icing on the cake, or the thin smear of tinned jam on his margarine.

Hello...well told little tale..I like the simplicity, the events you've selected are great and what a charming character ... everything vanilla except such a paradoxical last name...is his condition genetic or contagious or simply whimsical? - Lobber

Vanilla coloured sheets! Ha. And still mineral water. Great details make this one of those stories you want to look over again. I can see why you placed well in the votes! Second place is admirable. Thank you for posting!

This story makes me feel so sad for him. He may be average, but he should no be so down on himself. There has to be more to him than just his average looks.

I have it, on good authority, that Percy IX is a helluva stud in bed. It's a con-genital thing. Kidding.

Very nice depiction of bland. I have a feeling that bag-packers are high on any woman's fantasy list.

This is very minor, but the word 'slather' stood out to me. Slather suggests extravagance to me. Seems out of character.

Best of luck at the polls.

Peace, Lee

Wow, this is heavy. I half expected for him to either blow his head off or plan an assassin attack at a local shopping center. Thankfully neither one happened. Acceptance of what is is a powerful method of self-evaluation. One may be able to find peace in knowing one's limits. This is well written and spellbinding in reading what will happen next. I like the title and the last line with the moral of the story. Sometimes, it is what it is. Thank you for sharing this priceless piece of wisdom.
Take care, Jesse

I found this little tale refreshing -- a pleasant change from "Beauty is skin deep" and other tiring platitudes -- and entertaining as well. It's a clever response to the prompt. Good luck in the contest.
