When I'm Sad

by Nancy Rapchak

WHEN I'M SAD it feels like it's raining outside.

When I'm sad it feels like no one loves me, not even my cat.

When I'm sad I curl up in a ball and feel really bad, maybe even cry.

When I'm sad it feels like a big butt is sitting on me.

A big butt so fat that the cheeks are holding me down so I can't inflate like a child shaped balloon and straighten out my arms and my legs and my head.

It's really hard to stand up with a big butt sitting on you. You can't see anything around you because the big butt is covering your eyes, one cheek at a time.

I am so sad.

How can I go through my life with a big butt sitting on me, not letting my head inflate like a balloon?

This big butt is getting in the way of my being sad.

How can I cry with a big butt sitting on me? I mean, my tears will squirt off to the sides of my head, which is a balloon but can't inflate because there is a big butt sitting on me.

If I cry and the tears squirt off to the sides of my uninflated balloon head due to the big butt sitting on me, I might cause an accident.

Someone may be walking by and because the big butt that is sitting on me has caused my tears to squirt out of the sides of my head, that someone may slip and go flipping down the way. If that person who was just walking by happens to slip on the tears that had squirted out of the sides of my head because a big butt is sitting on me, that person just might slide right off of the edge of the world and then how would that be?

When a big butt is sitting on you it is hard to go out and play. I mean, how would it look if you were walking around with a big butt sitting on you -- if you could get your arms and legs and head to inflate, like a child shaped balloon, a child shaped balloon that was walking around with a big butt sitting on it? I think people would laugh and point. Or maybe they would run away screaming when they saw a person wobbling around and trying to walk down the sidewalk with a big butt sitting on them.

And how could you ride your bike? If you were able to inflate your arms and your legs and your head like a child shaped balloon, but there was a big butt sitting on you, and then got on your bike, would the bike be able to carry both you AND the big butt that was sitting on you? This could lead to a problem with the bike tires because they could pop from all the weight of you PLUS the weight of the big butt that was sitting on you. All because you were feeling sad.

Or how would you be able to feed yourself if you were able to inflate your arms and your legs and your head like a child shaped balloon but had a big butt sitting on you? Would enough food be able to fit on your plate to feed both you AND the big butt that was sitting on you? If there was a big butt sitting on you, how could the big butt eat if it should ever happen that you were to have a big butt that was to sit on you while you were eating? Hmm?

If there was a big butt sitting on you and it had no mouth with which to eat, would the big butt start to lose weight then, allowing you to be able to inflate your arms and your legs and your head like a child shaped balloon and to escape from under the big butt that was sitting on you? Hmm?

How would you fit in the bath tub with a big butt sitting on you? If you took a bath with a big butt sitting on you, you might have a problem getting a breath of air because if a big butt was sitting on you, it would be so heavy that you wouldn't be able to inflate your arms and your legs and your head like a balloon, a child shaped balloon. Balloons float and if you had a big butt sitting on you and you couldn't inflate your balloon floating head because a big butt was sitting on you, this could be a problem.

How could you sit at your school desk with a big butt sitting on you? If a big butt was sitting on you, it just may flatten out your school desk. Then what would you do? The teacher would make you stand in the corner with a big butt sitting on you. Would there be enough room in the corner for both you and AND the big butt that is sitting on you? Hmm? All because you were sad?

How would your mom be able to give you a hug with a big butt sitting on you? She might have to grow some longer arms to be able to get them around both you and the big butt sitting on you in order to give you a hug. After all she would have to give the big butt sitting on you a hug too, right? So now you see that you really shouldn't be sad at all. When you start feeling like you might feel near to the time where you might feel that you might start to feel sad and maybe want to cry, just imagine how much more awful it would be if a big butt were to come and decide to sit on you. Then you just might realize how nice you really feel and how bad you would really feel if a big butt was sitting on you and then you wouldn't feel bad at all because there is NO big butt sitting on you. Trying to imagine just how silly you would look if a big butt was sitting on you, and you were all flat just might make you start to giggle. If you start to giggle you will start to inflate and the big butt will get lighter and ligther.

Knowing that a big butt was really never sitting on you in the first place, although it really felt like it might aim for you, just might make you feel like it is sunny and bright outside and that there never was a reason to feel sad at all. Realizing that a big butt is NOT sitting on you might make you feel very much loved, especially by your cat who doesn't have a big butt sitting on him and see how happy he is?

The feeling you get when your mom wraps her arms around you in a warm hug will make you feel so glad that a big butt is NOT sitting on you and glad that your mom will not need to grow longer arms to wrap around you and the big butt sitting on you because there is NO big butt sitting on you. Feeling all light and airy as if your arms and your legs and your head are inflated like a child shaped balloon and that there is NO big butt sitting on you just might make you laugh and dance and start to sing.

Someone that is laughing and dancing and singing and has NO big butt sitting on them is happy and lucky and will have much fun today! Besides there is no laughing, dancing and singing allowed when a big butt is sitting on you, but now that there is NO big butt sitting on you, go on and have fun and leave all of the sad feelings and the tears to someone who has a big butt sitting on them.
