ice cream

s had her 2nd grade end-of-school ice cream party yesterday, and i went to school to help out. the kids piled on toppings, whipped cream, cherries, candy... really disgusting looking messes. while most of them gobbled it down and wanted seconds, one little girl was clutching her tummy.

"i feel sick!" she cried. "i'm not supposed to eat that stuff!"

"why?" i asked. "are you lactose intolerant?"

"naw, i'm just fat! i weigh ONE HUNDRED AND TEN pounds!"

i didn't know whether to laugh or cry.
