"A confession? I haven't read much lately that puts a smile on my face. This story did just that. in fact, I'm still smiling... I can't put my finger on exactly what enchanted me so much about this story, but enchanted I was... if you're looking for a wonderful (albeit short) read, I highly recommend "Oz".
