Holding on to Summer

Time flies when you’re in quarantine. That is the saying these days, isn’t it? As we’ve largely holed ourselves up in our homes, that time of year has come again. The end of summer is right around the corner. Whether virtual or physical, the funneling into classrooms continues. As the S’mores get exchanged for science books, there’s one place summer continues to reign: Mega Millions! And why shouldn’t it? Great riches, and all the wild summer holidays one could hope for, await whoever wins the big prize!

Alas, those dreams blew away like the sand on the beach. No one could claim the glory of winning Mega Millions August 18, 2020. Naturally, the prize climbed, stopping at $49 million.
