'My summer vacation,' the Andre Smith edition
We're going to kick it old school here and harken back to the days of going back to elementary school.
Remember that third-grade assignment to write about what you did during the summer? Well, here go with the Andre Smith remix of "My Summer Vacation."
For my summer vacation, I got a job. It is a very, very, very, very fun job. I like it a lot. Except, I didn't want to go to my job, so I didn't. I stayed at home and ran back and forth between some cones. I blocked air to show I can block people, too.
Then the big kids in the schoolyard made fun of me. On cable television. In more than 50 million homes. That wasn't very nice. I didn't like that. I almost cried.
Then I finally decided to go to my new job that I got a few months ago. The nice people in Cincinnati gave me a lot of money to work. I think it was about 42 ka-billion trillion million gagillion dollars.
Three days into my job, I broke my foot. And that is how I spent my summer vacation. Work is hard. Can I come back to school?
Early reports have Smith missing anywhere from three days to three weeks. Child, please.
