Did you eat local at every farm market?
Did you “fweeeee!” around every Ferris wheel?
Did you summer your summer to the summaximum?
If not, fear not: you are now entering a FOMO-free zone. The cats of summer don’t fault you if you spent May through August conked on your couch, eating mayonnaise with a spoon while watching NCIS.
