What Did You Do on Your Summer Vacation?

6939BFFA-6678-4753-9885-00A11AE6A69C“Hey, dude, good to see you,” Sammy said to Frank. “When did you get back?”

“On Monday,” Frank answered.

“So how was your summer?” Sammy asked. “Where’d you go? What’d you do?”

“I spent the summer in Ocean City, Maryland,” Frank answered in a matter of fact tone.

“Wow, Ocean City,” Sammy said. “Cool.”

“Not so much,” Frank said. “I spent the summer as a busboy at a crab house. It was hard work at minimum wage. And the trouble is that I used to love blue crab, but after crab being the mainstay of my diet for the whole summer, the thought of even a scintilla of crab gives me the dry heaves.”

“I can relate, dude,” Sammy said. “ I spent the summer working for a landscaping company, and if I never work on another flowerbed for the rest of my life, it will be too soon.”

“Sounds like neither of us had a great summer,” Frank said. “You know, buddy, classes for the fall term don’t start for another week and a half. We should take a trip somewhere and do some heavy duty unwinding.”

“Great idea, dude,” Sammy said. “And I know just the place. We can catch a flight to Cancun tomorrow.”
