FatLand: The Early Days – 43

Charla banged the gavel twice. “We would like to begin the meeting. Please take your seats.”

The PTA Association of FatLand all seated themselves in cushioned purple chairs with wings instead of arms.

“I’d like to begin by welcoming everyone to the first meeting of the PTA Association of FatLand,” Charla said.  “This is not only exciting because it affords us all the chance to work together and meet each other, but also because it gives us a chance to be proud of how far we’ve come and what we’ve accomplished.  We now number high enough to work in a PTA Association. Bravo!” She clapped. The entire audience applauded.

“One of the most important parts of our meeting tonight,” Charla said, “is discussion of how we want our children to be educated in FatLand.  I think many and perhaps even most of you know about our campaign to make your kids feel at home in their bodies and with themselves.  Now we want to hear from you. We want to hear your concerns about educating your children to be healthy and happy in our fat accepting and celebrating society.  We want you to work with us in creating curricula and activities and celebrations and pageants and physical ed programs.

The first item I would like to cover is the campaign I mentioned which tries to make our children feel at home and happy in their bodies.”
