11. Bobby the Fat Boy

Bobby loved to eat. He ate hamburgers, French fries, hot dogs, pizza, donuts, and ice-cream, just to name a few. No matter how much Bobby ate, he never got a stomachache. It is no surprise that Bobby weighs two hundred and fifty pounds. It might be surprising to know that Bobby is only fifteen years old. Bobby didn’t care that he was big. He was content with how he looked and loved eating as much as he could.

Bobby liked to tell jokes to his friends. “Knock, knock,” Bobby would say. “Who’s there?” friends would ask. “Gorilla,” Bobby replied. “Gorilla who?” they’d ask back. “Gorilla me a hamburger!” Bobby replied, delivering the punch line. The joke was in how the word gorilla sounded like grill. Bobby’s joke always left people in stitches.

Even though Bobby was popular and friendly, he was still teased by some kids in school. Fat boy Bobby was the nick name the mean kids gave to Bobby. Whenever Bobby heard the nick name, he would reply with gusto, “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me.” The bullies would funnily reply, “I bet you would eat those sticks and stones, fat boy Bobby!” and scurry off running.

Bobby did not let idiotic name calling bother him. He had more important things to think about, like what he was going to eat for dinner. Bobby knew that one day he would have to lose weight if he wished to live a longer life. Until that day came, Bobby would continue eating what he wanted and as much he wanted.

Bobby adorava comer. Ele comia hambúrgueres, batatas fritas, cachorros-quentes, pizza, rosquinhas e sorvete, só para citar alguns. Não importa o quanto Bobby comia, ele nunca teve uma dor de estômago. Não é nenhuma surpresa que Bobby pesa 250 quilos. É surpreendente saber que Bobby tem apenas quinze anos de idade. Bobby não se importava que era enorme. Ele estava contente com sua aparência e amava comer tanto quanto podia.

Bobby gostava de contar piadas para seus amigos. “Toc, TOC,” Bobby diz. “Quem está aí?” os amigos perguntariam. “Gorila” Bobby respondeu. “Gorila, quem?” Eles perguntaram novamente. “gorila (grelha) pra mim um hambúrguer!” Bobby respondeu, finalizando a piada. A piada era em com a palavra “gorila” soava igual a “grelhar”. A Piada de Bobby sempre deixava as pessoas rindo muito.

Mesmo que Bobby fosse popular e amigável, ele ainda era provocado por algumas crianças na escola. Menino gordo Bobby era o apelido que as crianças más deram ao Bobby. Sempre que Bobby ouvia o apelido, ele respondia com entusiasmo, “paus e pedras podem quebrar meus ossos, mas palavras nunca podem me machucar.” Os agressores respondiam sorrindo, “Eu aposto que você comeria esses paus e pedras, gorducho, Bobby!” e saiam correndo apressadamente.

Bobby não deixou que os nomes idiotas o incomodassem. Ele tinha coisas mais importantes em que pensar, como o que ele ia comer no jantar. Bobby sabia que algum dia ele teria que perder peso, se ele pretendesse viver uma vida mais longa. Até que esse dia chegue, Bobby iria continuar comendo o que ele queria e tanto quanto ele queria.
