Enjoyed this story and the cabbie who dropped the 'h' on how. Brilliant and quirky use of Ow! Thanks - Colin

Now this is the "quirky" kind of story that they were probably expecting (according to the message boards) when they chose the topic "ow!" Very funny and creative! I absolutely adore British accents, so the British cabby is a fun character for me to read about. :) Hilarious dialogue!

Lovely humour. Nice to read something so lighthearted on a "painful" topic.

Ha! Great humor! I never would have thought to write something like this for OW! I enjoyed this much.
A beautiful, dramatic prose or piece of writing. You strike me as a very good writer with bright prospects. Excellent plot, excellent story and so well connected to the topic. I personally think this is one of the best articles I have read in this level. And it doesn't quite sound Level 1. Keep it up!

Thank you to all of you for the wonderful comments! I had fun with this one. The idea came rather quickly, and flowed pretty easily. That doesn't usually happen for me, so this was exciting! Thanks again! Blessings to all!

Having spent some time in Covent Garden a few years ago, I really loved this! And I loved your take on "ow" with the Cockney dialect. Clever writing!

I've started a class in the FaithWriters forums for Beginner and Intermediate writers. I'd love to see you there--look for "Jan's Writing Basics".

You're a rising star, I think!

Very good. Having been in England, I could just hear the cabby. Chuckled all the way through.

I think this was the best one I read so far in regards to the subject matter.

I am partial to British accents and characters so this was an enjoyable read. So well-written. I hardly can't say anything in way of a critique!
