*whines* I don't want to by Grinchy! Honest! But this short story had a couple of issues I just couldn't overlook. I tried, really I did, 'coz the story's premise was good.
First, there were editing issues. Not just simple misspellings but original words left in along with the edited corrections. More than once. That's just sloppy. :|
Second, while I enjoy a sweet treat on occasion - OK, I'm a sucker for sweet and happy - this was even too much for my sugar-addicted palate.
And third - and this was a biggie for me - the "sweet elf" thing was cute the first two times but then it got silly and then plain annoying. See...Grinchy! And I hate being Grinchy! :(
