Dishing Quack: My Offseason Vacation in GIFs

The End of our Purgatory is Nigh

As a kid, one of the worst things about returning to elementary school in the fall was the annual “What I did on my summer vacation” essay. The pressure of producing a narrative about an amazing fun filled summer that was so much better than everyone else’s was intense, especially when the reality was that I spent the entire three months riding my yellow banana seat Schwinn down to the corner store to buy sweet tarts and candy cigarettes with money I scrounged from recycling my dad’s empty Olympia beer bottles.

But the assignment is compulsory and the offseason is drawing to a close, so endure it we must. Because ATQ is a safe zone (HEY IT COULD HAPPEN) I can be transparent about how I’d like to frame my offseason, and the reality of my offseason. And because this is 2018 and not 197....er 1995, we don’t have to kick it old school by writing a shit essay in cursive with a Number 2 pencil on college ruled notebook paper. So without futher ado, I’d like to present Daisy’s offseason as told in GIFs.
