- Mom, On the Phone With ???: Yeah and Carla's first short story is getting published!! You know she's been working on her degree...
- Pastor's Wife, Who Was Absent on Sunday: I heard you got your story published! Congratulations!
- Mom, At Lunch: You need to publish that other one you let me and Dad read! The one about the little girl?? It was sO GOOD---
- Teacher, During Conference Call: I think we all need to take the time to congratulate Carla again on the publication of her short story. Shows everyone that it can be done.
