Grievous Weight

Walking home from school, Evelyn describes in great and morose detail why she wants to go on a nature hike soon. Part of her reason is basically that fall is short and sweet and will pass too quickly.
I start laughing. “That all sounds good, but you sound *so* grumpy, Evelyn!”
Evelyn, immediately: “I’m always grumpy when I’m carrying something heavy.”
