Tempest Fugit! Time Flies
EJ looked stunned. He had put off completing his project and had forgotten that he still had the presentation to do and was due tomorrow!
Tempest fugit! This familiar Latin phrase helps EJ learn a valuable lesson. He always feels that he will have time to get things done—later. Even after missing the bus, forgetting to do chores, and letting down his best friend, Juan, EJ does not learn this lesson. Finally, after feeling that he let down his mother, EJ learns that time does indeed fly and it is better to have a plan and complete tasks as they come along than to wait until the last minute to get things done.
