This week on Modern Family, Alex says she has to skip a Spring Break trip with her friend because she has to study for the PSAT.
The PSAT is in October. If you, dear reader, are tempted to forgo a vacation in April to study for a test that is happening in October, you are working way too hard. Go to the beach. Watch the sea filling the shore with its roar of bubbles rather than filling in bubbles on a test sheet.
I can’t tell if the writers know when the PSAT is, and are characterizing Alex as a crazy person who studies for tests at every possible moment even when they are 6 months away, or if they don’t know when the test is, and are just vaguely characterizing her as someone who is making a reasonable, if boring, Spring Break plan.
I’m assuming the latter.
