My Summer Vacation

Lesson 247:
When telling the stories of your life, there's a lot of freedom in writing about what you haven't done! Use this starting phrase:

This past summer I didn't...

I choose to write a short poem with todays lesson.

This past summer I didn't
paint my toenails red.
I didn't laze around in bed.
This summer I didn't
run a marathon.
I didn't even re-seed the lawn.
I failed to have coffee beside the Nile;
Not a soul in Peru saw my smile.
I didn't dance the tango beneath the stars,
Or mop the deck of a pirate ship flying to Mars.
If you were in England having tea
there is no possible way that you would have seen me.
I wasn't at the circus, the zoo or the fair;
I didn't have Elvis' barber cut my hair.
Summer is over ~
The fall winds are blowing;
I'm daydreaming about all the places I'm not going.
