A fat autumn rain

Autumn the quiet, but beautiful, transition to the whirling thrill that is winter.1

“There Mrs. Hinksley, I have finished writing the lines you gave me, May I leave now?”4

“Yes you may, Thomas, but you better not forget to do your homework again.”5

Aww man—great just my luck, its gonna rain. I hate walking home in the rain. Why did my mom have to take concern about my unhealthy diet and my slightly-over-weight problem. She couldn’t just take concern about my health next summer when I would have plenty of time to worry about failing on my new healthy diet. Man I’m hungry, stupid carrots my mom is feeding me don’t fill me up, I’ll just get something from the 7/11 up the street.8

Ooh my favorite potato chips and ranch dip, “Excuse me store clerk, how much for these?”9

“Sorry kid, but your mom came in here earlier and said we couldn’t sell you anything except water and those baked snow peas.”10

“Fine, I’ll take a bottle of water and those disgusting pea things.”11

Mom just can’t let me be me. There is nothing wrong with me I’m twelve pounds lighter than her and she isn’t fat. If she is putting me on a diet why isn’t she putting herself on one too?12

Finally I’m home. Mom, can we move closer to the school all this walking is making my feet hurt.13

“Son you are going to the doctor for a routine check-up, so we can find out how much weight you need to lose; alright?”14

“But mom it looks like it is going to rain can we go in the summer?”15

“No young man now put your shoes back on, we are going to walk to the clinic.”16

“But mom it is going to rain.”17

“So the clinic is just across the street and a little rain never hurt anybody.”18

At the doctor20

“Thomas the doctor will see you now.”21

“Come on son.”22

“Hi Thomas, my name is Dr. Blong, could you step on this scale please?”23

Well ma’am this is very serious your son weighs one-hundred and fourteen pounds and he should weigh between 50-70 pounds for his height and age. For an eight year old boy he is thirty-one pounds over weight, I suggest you take him for a run in the rain tonight and take advantage of the clean air quality.26

“Okay doc I will and thank you for your time, come on son.”27

“Mom you aren’t really going to take me running in the rain, I could catch a cold.”28

“Yes son, I am, stay here while I grab our coats and a few water bottles.”29
