Summer Brake

A friend of mine (not a native speaker of English) (not that native speakers or even spelling correctors know any better) sent out this message:

« … on a besoin d’un petit repos… Summer brake! »

I thought about correcting” her, but then I became aware of the poetry in this misspelling”.

The word should” be spelled break, and, yet, brake is kind of perfect, too! I mean, we need to slow down in the summer, don’t we?
