The Whiteboard part four

Welcome to the latest (fourth) installment of The Whiteboard. This story has been keeping me company for weeks now. I am sort of liking the fact that I can just write about 500 words on it (equivalent of 2  pages or so) and let that be the writing for the day. A writer writes. So, I am. I hope you are enjoying this little tale. (I actually do have an ending!) Here are the three previous links to parts one, two, and three.

Get with the program!

Where I used to be with the program I remember my yesterdays when I was in high school or college and I could eat pizza, candy, and drink cokes every single meal and never gain a pound. I went out at night with friends and we danced and we roller-skated and we played tennis at the court at the park. I kept busy, so I guess my body didn’t think about those extra calories. And now that I work 8-5, sitting in front of a computer all day, I really am in a perfect storm for gaining weight that is
