I liked your dialect.
I thought it was going to turn out differently.
I loved your title and description of "Hairy Ears".
Good writing, as usual.
Ha, two twists in a few paragraphs! I wasn't surprised that he was at the "wrong family" reunion, but the actual twist I didn't see coming. Great job! Very fun.
