    As noted in the overview, this is a really short story - only four pages. However, it was a clever short story and well worth the time I spent reading it. In fact, after reading it through once, I went right back and read it through again, just for the fun of it.

    I have no idea how someone could make a living writing short stories such as this one. I am simply pleased, however, that this story was written, published, and that I did stumble across it.

    Best wishes,
    Dave Wile

    I had fun sharing this story with friends and seeing if they could figure out the ending. Most of them did, though a few had to have it explained to them, nevertheless, all enjoyed it and I hope fellow readers do as well.
