It's unusual for teenaged boys to turn up pregnant. But Pumpkin (Anthony Douglas) did just that. Because he's not used to the whole concept, he wasn't prepared for when his belly dropped. It doesn't hurt a whole lot. But it certainly is a feeling a teenaged boy wouldn't normally be exposed to. His belly dropping is a sign he's close to giving birth now. If he's unlucky enough, he might have another, much lower belly drop before it's over with.
For some it happens when they're asleep. Or others, when going down the stairs or reaching for a high shelf. For Pumpkin, trying to slip on his shoes by sliding off of his bed did the trick. It wasn't like he had a choice. His belly being as large as it was, he couldn't reach his feet very well. And so, putting on his clothes became quite the task. Now that his belly's dropped, getting dressed will be more difficult than ever. And sadly, he's just realized that denim jeans aren't quite as stretchy as his cozy cotton hoodie.
