The Breakfast Club’s Essay

Dear Mr. Vernon:

We accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong, but we think you’re crazy to make us write an essay telling you who we think we are. You see us as you want to see us… In the simplest terms and the most convenient definitions. But what we found out is that each one of us is
a brain
and an athlete
and a basket case
a princess
and a criminal
Does that answer your question?
Sincerely yours,
the Breakfast Club.
