The school year is ending soon, and many parents are getting excited at the thought of their children coming back home. Area mom Caitlyn Lettie is one such happy parent and is reportedly rushing around her home, shouting at her kids who are still at home to “make everything stainless,” while trying to make sure the house is “so sparkly clean that you can see the curvature of the earth in the reflection.”

“I’ve been looking forward to seeing my son since he went back to school at the end of spring break,” said Lettie. “I’ve been cleaning nonstop since the end of May, and I just got out all the boxes so we’re all set to bring him and all his stuff home when the time comes.”

The students are also looking forward to returning home. After another stressful quarter, many students are ready to go back to their residences and finally relax while ignoring the reality that they only have 104 days to enjoy their summer before school begins again and crushes their spirits once more.

“I’m definitely sure he’s gonna be real glad to return home, his face always lights up when he gets to his room,” Lettie said. “It was the same for both breaks. He was really exhausted when we finally got back after the long trip home, but when he got to his room and laid down on his bed, I saw his tired face break into a wide grin. He must have been real happy to see his family and get a home-cooked meal.”

Lettie’s son, Terry, was then asked about how he felt about returning home to his family and fresh meals, to which he replied, “Uh, yeah, it definitely was neither of those things.” According to Terry, the “wide grin” at the time actually came from him seeing his old friend, a recently bought PlayStation 4, along with his library of games.

“I don’t actually give two shits about a home-cooked meal, I only eat junk food anyway,” explained Terry, while putting a cheap french bread pizza in the microwave. “And I Skype my parents on, like, at least a weekly basis. What’s the difference seeing them in person? You know what I can’t see in person? Kingdom Hearts.

“I only got excited because my dorm doesn’t have a TV, so we had to leave the PlayStation at home. Once I get back, I’m not leaving it alone for a minute. I’ve been so ready to play Persona 5 for months, I already love it more than I love my family. Who am I kidding? Persona 5 is basically my family now.”
