Our letter this week comes from Sandy, and it’s actually a tweet. Sandy’s tweet comes to us straight from the beach where she is spending her Spring Break vacation (lucky!). She writes:
Thanks for your Tweet, Sandy – and for the opportunity to think about Spring Break!
The best thing about Spring Break is… fighting the sand people.
What sand people?!
The ones you fight each and every time that you go to the beach – whether you realize it or not.
Let me explain.
When you go to the beach. To run around in the surf, swim around, and play in the sand, you (probably) unknowingly participate in the battle against the sand people.
Just beneath the surface of the sand, there are loads of sand people.
Nobody knows! And that’s the scary part.
It is believed (by scientists or something) that the sand people plan each spring and summer to rise from beneath the sand to overthrow us land dwellers.
But when we go to the beach and frolic around, we crush the sand people until they are nothing, but… sand.
Thus we hold off the onslaught for another season.
And that (not being attacked by the sand people) is the best thing about Spring Break!
Until next time, keep it factual out there!
