The Slice

When you hear the words “summer school”

What goes through your mind?

A) I remember that when I was a kid it was synonymous with a jail sentence for underachieving young scholars who were trying to avoid being held back a year. B) I remember a summer when I tried to pick up a few college credits after spending most of my freshman year in a keg-induced haze. C) A relaxed dress code. D) I had a friend who did a stretch and he said he spent all morning looking out the window, smelling freshly cut grass and hearing the sound of bats hitting baseballs. E) Other.
