Watching a game during winter means having to sit inside an outdoor stadium when it’s freezing; thus, wearing a good jacket becomes a requirement if you don’t plan on missing out catching a match (or two) over weekends.

Four Lovers in Vienna

It is 7 o’clock in the evening. Whale is watching a soap opera on television; the soap opera is called Four Lovers in Vienna.

Hot Dog: What is the soap opera about, Whale?

Whale: It is about four couples and the challenges which they experience in life and their relationships.

Hot Dog: What kind of challenges?

Whale: Many kinds! In today’s episode, for example, one of the couples – Cedric and Blaire, are talking to each other about eloping because their parents are against their relationship.

Hot Dog: Why?

Whale: Because Cedric is from a well-to-do middle class family and Blaire is a working class girl who is employed by Cedric’s mother as a maid. Both their parents think that it would be best if they were in a relationship with somebody from their respective classes instead.

Hot Dog: Oh no!

Whale: Yes! Horrible, isn’t it?

Hot Dog: Yes, it is! So, how did Cedric and Blaire fall in love?

Whale: After Blaire worked in the house which Cedric lived in for four years, he began noticing that she is a very good maid. So, post that, Cedric began spending time with Blaire every evening and soon after that, the two developed feelings for each other and thus, started dating.

Food and a Letter

Jack, Hot Dog and Moo are sitting at a table which is located next to a sculpture of a fairy, with the foods they have ordered. They wanted to sit next to Arthur but some of their classmates were already occupying the tables located close to him.

Jack: Hot Dog, why did you only order a paper packet of barbecued ribs and a glass of orange juice? That’s not enough food!
Hot Dog: It is for me! I like that you got a hamburger!
Jack: Yeah? I think out of all the foods I ordered for myself, the pizza is my favourite; it’s a tomato and beef pizza.
Moo: The pizza which I ordered with my hamburger and sandwich is very exotic – it’s topped with olives, cheese and curry-flavoured chicken slices.
Jack: Wow!
Moo: Mm-hmm!
Hot Dog: It sounds very tasty!

Meanwhile, at Mr. Brown’s house, Fat Pig is busy writing a small letter.

Dear Auntie Ashley

I am having the worst day of my life. I had an argument with Mr. Brown and now I feel scared to live with him. Can you please come visit me soon? I will feel better if you come and stay with me for some weeks. Also, if you help me, I can get myself back in his favour once again.

Love,

Fat Pig

Fat Pig (thinks to himself): I must post this letter after school tomorrow! I hope I could convince her to come live with me!

The Letter

Fat Pig is going through a bunch of items which he has kept inside a big green-coloured box. He is looking for a letter which he received from a relative recently; he often loves to read the letter. After looking for over five minutes, Fat Pig finds it and begins to read it once more. The letter states,

Dear Fat Pig,

It has been a while since we last heard from each other. I was happy to learn that you have collected many stamps. I would love to know what else you do whole day. I hope you like the strawberry pies I made especially for you and sent with this letter.

Please write to me frequently. I haven’t yet gotten married to the man I love and so, I do not often stay very busy. I also live in a really lousy neighbourhood, where I have to make adjustments with a lot of people, even though I do not like the way they lead their lives. If you write to me often, I will have somebody to share stories with and that would make me very happy.

Love,

Your Auntie Ashley

Fat Pig (thinks to himself): I better write a letter to her about the argument which I had with Mr. Brown. I am sure I will feel a lot better after doing that!

Fat Pig Quarrels with Mr. Brown

It is late in the afternoon. Mr. Brown is mowing his lawn. Fat Pig, meanwhile, is lying in bed and trying to take a nap but having very little success with it because he is too busy crying over being unable to go to Arthur’s party.

Fat Pig (crying and thinking to himself): I hate Mr. Brown! I still can’t believe I couldn’t go to the party my friends went to because of what I did to his frying pan! I should have never been punished this much for something so stupid!

Forty minutes later, Mr. Brown knocks on Fat Pig’s door.

Fat Pig: Come in!
Mr. Brown: Did you eat your lunch?
Fat Pig: Yes!
Mr. Brown: I just finished mowing my lawn! I will be gone for a few hours to spend time with some of my friends! So,…
Fat Pig: Why are you telling me all that? Do you think I want to know what you do whole day?
Mr. Brown: Don’t talk to me like that!
Fat Pig: Then how should I talk to you when you did not let me go the party my friends went to?
Mr. Brown: You will talk to me nicely!
Fat Pig: I will do no such thing! Now, please leave and let me sleep!
Mr. Brown (shouts): Fat Pig, I will not have you living under my roof if you misbehave with me in this way!
Fat Pig: Is that supposed to be a threat?
Mr. Brown: No! But you must change your behaviour soon! Fat Pig, you should never misbehave with me like this when you did something wrong! Don’t act like you don’t know all that! Oh! I don’t even know just what I am bringing up anymore!
