It’s no surprise that summers are totally different when you’re a stock show kid. Here’s just a few examples we can all relate to:
Your friends: Have a summer romance with someone from the neighboring town because they met at the city pool.

Your friends: “Have you seen Oceans 8 yet?”
You: “Have you seen Sullivan’s summer product launch yet?”
