“Laura, you’ve got to help me,” I stated to my best friend as
we randomly bumped into one another in the parking lot of Gibson High School on
our way to class.
“Sure Kelly, what’s up?” I replied after I had just taken a
sip from the container of Sippity Lite chocolate flavored sugar free hot
chocolate I was holding.
“I can’t seem to lose any weight and with the holidays just
around the corner I’m afraid that I’m going to gain at least fifteen pounds.

door to the school open for me. I’ll see you after third period when we can go
to the store and get a container of Sippity Lite sugar free hot chocolate.”
“See you then.”
“Hey Laura,” Kelly called out to me as she stood in the
