Canadians Reject My Work

Came home to find a rejection in the mail: a 34 day model from On Spec. Same as the others I've gotten from them, the standard form with additional comments, remarks, &tc. added at the bottom.

Need to decide if I want to send it back out again. It hasn't been to all that many markets yet, so it's still fairly shiny, and it's fairly amusing.

The chief obstacles to it are that it's a short-short (an issue for some markets), and that it's built on the "three wishes" cliche. This isn't always a problem, of course, but does present an extra challenge in finding it a home. Plus, it puts me in jeopardy of violating the oath I swore.
