I still love this story so much. All the parts of it: the voice and the structure and the humor and horror and the things it does (and doesn't) say.

I loved this, so funny and horrible and true.

However, woe is me, I went to give it seven rocket dragons and I thought that one had to fill them all out from left to right. But no, they thought I wanted to give you only one rocket dragon. And there are no do-overs.

They have a consolatory note, even, about how a superior story may not get superior ratings.

Maybe I could come back from a different computer and try again. Heh heh heh.

Ha! Apparently there's a timeout involved. Or maybe the fact that David had to change things when we got the high-speed internet activated, because the router didn't like the old internet address. Anyway. I have now given the story a total of eight rocket dragons.

I wonder what a rocket dragon IS.

Ooops.
