A very short story.
That’s an EXCELLENT essay subject, because you get to do (almost) anything at all ! And points for style, right? I spent my summer not getting a tan, not going to Tahiti or the Mediterranean, not learning to be a 5 star chef and not rebuilding a 1962 MG. Unfortunately, I also spent the summer not reaching my weight goal…

Depending on the tide, I’ll snorkel for about an hour. People ask all the time, aren’t you bored since you retired?
Sophia may end up being a survivor having done little and studying at home.
I virtually did a lot of things.
My essays always started with “My family is poor so…” before listing my trips to the library and what books I read.
