I should have never opened my mouth and said what I did when I saw those fat people at the beach last weekend. Now my grandma is punishing me by making me carry a young pig, as a way of seeing what these people have to go through.
If you ask me, I think it is one of the stupidest punishments I have ever heard of. We live on a farm, so we have animals about. I have to carry this pig, and it's embarrassing having to explain to everyone why I am doing this.
It would have been a lot easier carrying a sign that reads something like this: "I made fun of fat people."
Or maybe not. At least it's better than having to lug ol' Porky around!
I think fat people are gross. I have always made fun of them. Then I moved in with grandma, and she heard me mouth off once too often, so now I am being punished. I should have listened to her. It is not nice to make fun of others; I could be in their shoes one day, she has always told me. I guess she had had enough of my teasing when we'd gone to the beach last weekend, and now I am paying for my "crime".
I have to take Porky to school, out to see my friends, even to church. It's embarrassing when he starts to squeal or has to do his business; more than once he's downloaded onto the floor, and people are like, "Ewww! Gross!!" I'm trying to act nonchalant as I clean up his "accidents", and by this time, I'm more than ready to turn Porky into a pile of porcine bacon!!
This punishment started yesterday. I have one week to go. If I behave myself, then Porky goes back into the barn where he belongs. I can't wait; Porky is only a young pig, but he weighs over 50 pounds, and my arms are about to fall off! I am just glad that grandma didn't do this when Porky gets full grown; there's no way I could carry a full-grown pig around!
Trust me, I will never open my mouth and make smart comments about others ever again! I don't want to think of having to do this again; it's totally humiliating, and now everyone is going to call me "Pig-Boy" or other pig-related monikers! Having to do this once is more than enough!!
