Julie,

Thanks for coming back. It's good to know that ending came across. And we do have a blue plaque scheme here too, so maybe one day ...

Fliss,

Thanks for reading and commenting. I'm pleased the close made sense to you. In terms of the dialogue, I was following the OED on punctuating direct speech, but I could have gone the other way around with the inverted commas. I'm not strongly attached to either, just new to writing dialogue. I don't normally write fiction.

best,

Matt

Matt,

Thanks for posting. Good to see you here.

Like Felicity, I found this rather dream-like and to be fair, though that always trips the "Kafka Ahead" warning sign in my head, unlike Kafka I though there was real humor in this. Maybe Kafka is funnier in German, I've never bothered to find out. That said, I did enjoyed this, but thought it might be taken a little further. That the stakes might be raised in some way, maybe if the questions became more personal. Just a thought. But like Julie, I was entertained by this one.
