summer brain drain

It’s summertime! Who’s thinking about Brain Drain??

Breathe deeply, hear the splash in the pool. For a few sweet weeks, let the chaos of the school year recede; forget about schedules and stop rushing around.

You can almost do it, until the dreaded question pops up on the radio, in a newspaper or magazine, or as part of a discussion thread on the neighborhood e-mail list:

What, if anything, are you doing to prevent summer brain drain?
