Wonderful little story. well put together. Well read.

Oh, great and mighty Alasdair, Orator Maleficent, He of the Silvered Tongue, guide this humble fangirl past jumping up and down and squeeing upon hearing the greatness of Thy voice.
Oh mighty Mur the Magnificent. I am not worthy.

Loved. It. :)

I invent imaginary people and make them have conversations in my head. I also write.

Light and fluffy and leaves you with a smile.  One of the two best recipes for flash fiction.  (The other being eerie, portentous, and leaves you looking over your shoulder at the shadows.)

Cute, but not enough substance to leave a lasting impression.
I did like the line about virgins and accountants not being mutually exclusive.

A fun look at the annoyances of our everyday life set in our favorite caves of treasure. I love the virginity
