Yael Mermelstein

Dr. Schwartz shook his head as I stepped off the scale. Then he shook his head again, first to the right, then to the left, then right and then left again. “Benny,” he said. “You’ve gained a bit too much weight since your last doctor’s visit. I would suggest that you cut out junk food as much as possible and that you start an exercise regimen. It isn’t healthy to be carrying around extra weight that you don’t need.”

 

Bentzi and the Magic Potion: Chapter 9

Shifra Glick
