Day One Hundred Fifty-Three: "A Family of Breastfeeders" by Starkey Flythe, Jr.


A young boy recounts having heard about being from a family of breastfeeders. He knows every story, every analogy, every euphemism, and it's hilarious to watch his observations on the page. I personally loved this story because I could relate to the explanations and the rationales given by nursing mothers. There is such a sense of pride that is conveyed in this story that is done perfectly and not overtly. I very much enjoyed this read. The dialogue was spot on and the details entertaining, keeping the story moving from humorous comment to humorous comment.
