Write a story in which every word contains the letter ‘a’**

Like Father, Like Daughter

Dad always says that as anyone travels a great asset means a great headrest, almost as vital as a great mattress. Many acquaintances and family associates had a hard crack at understanding what Dad meant. As an adult, having matured and nabbing an occupation as a sales manager means travelling away everyday.

As a sales manager, travelling means crashing at cheap accommodation. Each mattress are nearly identical—hard, weak and uncomfortable. As a sales manager, travelling means always having a great headrest, that means always managing a great nap. Dad was always flawless at headrest recommendations and advice.
