Uncle Jeb

PROMPT: Writing for Children Competition 2020

Uncle Jeb is my uncle. He likes to play around with me, and travel here and there and everywhere. He is rich. He loves laying around in our house watching whatever sport he can find. He loves to play football with me, I even win sometimes. 
One day, Uncle Jeb decided to go for a walk. He wanted to get what he called ‘healthy’. So he would eat and eat and eat. He ate a lot of greens, I thought...
