On my first read, all I could think was that this is one bitter woman. On the second read, I thought that perhaps she wasn't so much bitter, but more concentrated in her efforts to rise up from her upbringing and provide better for her family. The fact that she tried to explain why not to her daughter rather than just say no kinda points in that direction for me, and reading farther, she prolly had real reasons for hating dogs in the first place, considering what happens. But in a few short paragraphs, you have given me a good foundation to understand why she is the way she is. Awesome!

I don't know if I'm up for the fun part of this challenge, but I'm working on it. But geez, talk about flexing my mental muscles...*G*

Hugs

Esther

I ended up making this person male, since it was supposed to be our opposite and I was giving it a try. It was well-received in class and I got some good comments, one of which was the germophobia was usually a very feminine trait (not if they'd every met my husband...). There are some good writers in that class, and we haven't heard from everyone yet. God, I love that class!
