For any kid who has heard “Get outside and play,” and for any parent who has said it. I can’t believe Mom made me stop my video game to get some fresh air. Stupid outside.
At least the guys are here. Their moms made them come outside, too.
That shouldn’t be too hard. Maybe I’ll finally get lucky. It’ll fall any second.

This story was funny. The boy is forced from his video games and told to go outside, which he doesn't like. He and his friends stand under a tree with one leaf remaining, thinking that catching the leaf is lucky.
