How to Tell a Good KIS Story in American English after Your Summer Vacation?

How do you tell a good KIS story in American English after your summer vacation?

Just the way you feel about it.  Keep It Simple.  That’s the KIS rule in speech or writing – either way.  Telling a story in American English isn’t any different than doing it in any other language.  Just follow your instincts, your, so to speak, gut’s feeling.  Go with the flow.

EURO 2012 in Poland and Ukraine. What Game Are They Playing? Football or Soccer?
