Here is a skeletal description of the character you will write about today:
Fifteen-year-old Peg believes that everyone is born with certain quotas: their bodies are already programmed with the number of people they'll sleep with, the amount of soda they'll drink, the number of countries they'll travel to. One Tuesday morning, Peg wakes up and realizes she's exhausted her quota of speech.
