Casper tells a story of about how his parents cleverly turned cleaning their house into a game. While talking about where Queen Victoria used to pee, Vanessa makes multiple attempts to do a British accent which Casper mysteriously does not mock. Casper spends the majority of his 30 Second Recap lamenting how no one wants to talk about owls with him. Vanessa obliges him, so send in your owl-related voicemails for an Owl Post episode to email@example.com.
Casper points out that games often create a different construction of reality where earnest belief allows you to experience joy. As the text frames the end of summer as gloomy, Casper talks about how to find the happiness at the beginnings of a school year. Vanessa builds upon that idea, saying sadness around summer or a weekend ending does not necessarily signal that work is bad, but merely that people must grapple with things coming to an end. Vanessa suggests how play can be used to subvert traditions, and shares a personal story about how humor can be used in times of sadness and fear.
In Sacred Imagination, Casper imagines himself as Hermione and wishes he understood science. Vanessa remembers times where she learns groundbreaking new information, and how that can make you feel small or alternatively, make the world seem very large.
