Day Two Hundred Fourteen: "Big Alabama and the Chained Refrigerator" by James Valvis


A girl whose parents are worried she is gaining too much weight chain their refrigerator shut and then cut out their daughter's lunch. But...she doesn't lose weight. It doesn't make sense. The family is perplexed, convinced she must be stealing lunches from other kids at school. But one night at dinner, her brother figures it out. The dog food is being devoured at an alarming weight. His sister's cry for help a simple frown across the table. How sad a story...such desperation that cannot be discussed and as equally cannot be explained.
