In the nick of time

I signed up for the writer’s group just in the nick of time. This afternoon I received my second rejection slip from F&SF in the last 8 days. This time it was for the short-short “Blind Date”. The wording of the rejection was only slightly different than that of “Graveyard Shift”. Instead of “this tale didn’t hold my interest”, it read, “this tale didn’t work for me.” Does that mean it did hold his interest?
