"Daddy, I need your help. I have to write about a personal struggle, but I can't think of one."
"Hmm... let's think for a moment.
Oh! I know!
You could write about how one time on the weekend we went to go eat some ice cream, but we had forgotten to buy some ice cream, and so we couldn't have ice cream that night.
That was definitely a major trial.
Or, that one day that Jason called to inform me that Costco was going to quit selling Otis Spunkmeyer cookie dough! Oh geez, that caused a fright."
"Fantastic Dad, thanks."
