This was a great piece of writing, the character's tone was superbly humorous, and the storyline was great. Keep up the great work! :)

I really enjoyed this. It's very cleverly constructed, combing the flippant tone with a serious message. I loved the bit about her hair looking good in the picture, but also the cold facts about what happened to the released monkeys. Very nicely done.

This piece deserves to win. You managed to create a tone and pace that work within the word limit, but the content is so compelling. It's funny, it's thoughtful, and your speaker is believably wise and experienced. Great job, really, and I wish you the best of luck!

Fantastic! Well-written and fluid! I enjoyed the sister disapproving the mug. I appreciated the sense of longing to be young and rebellious again. I could picture everything without it all being spelled out for me. Also, the monkey story is hilarious. She tried to save the monkeys and instead probably hurt more than she helped. Youthful, naive, misguided attempt to save the monkeys that the narrator doesn't completely regret because at least she tried something. I appreciate that perspective.

This does sound like one of the pranks that activists took part in during the late 60's and early 70's. I'm glad to see the narrator finally grew up. However my concern is about those activists who haven't grown up and still don't act responsibly.

My entry in this contest, titled "Demands of the Activists" deals with just what disastrous results their irresponsible behavior could lead to.
