You have a fairly good story told in the third person. The opening setup, has Deanna on a blind date with Ben. A date she's setup with through a friend named Ivan. The opening was both funny and gross. The central theme, Deanna needs to fart really bad, and I do mean bad! You did a good job of rises the tension. And you made her a believable character through her actions and flaws. The ending wasn't a totally surprise, however, it was still amusing when she finally lets the fart go. The only thing that I didn't understand, was the last three lines of your short story and what it had to do with it or I just didn't get the humor of it.
“I bought the coin sorter,” she said.
“From the infomercial. It works really well.”
Overall, a quick, fun read. Good luck!

He has to fight for her love and respect. Naturally, she’s out of his league; on her way up to become... read
A review of SLIP/THROUGHby **DELETED ACCOUNT** on 05/28/2014Wow. I don’t know where to begin, so I’ll start off by saying—I did enjoyed SLIP/THROUGH. And regardless of what I think, you deserve kudos tackling something this complicated; constructing into a cohesive story fairly well. Overall, it was a terrific story, and out of my league to critique. I’ll do what I can and best wishes! My major grip is with the opening TITLE CARD:... read
