April 27 is also my Birthday, interesting that I, a writer, should share the same day as National writers day, so here's a story.
"Grandma? Can you help me with this assignment? I'm supposed to interview people who lived through 2020. Would you be willing to tell me about it?"
"Well, I can tell you many many things about it, but I can tell you what dominated the year, and the following year, was pure confusion. None of the rules and laws made sense, not many people were able to trust their own government. The world was full of, and till is full of idiots and angry people."
"Grandma, isn't that one of your poems in your published book of poems?"
"Yes, it is my child. A few things were certain though. That it was real, and it was happening worldwide. the people were sick and dying."
"Where were you, Grandma?"
"Me, when they first shut down the school It was after track practice. I was talking with one of my friends when they got a text about the schools being shut down. Well, I didn't believe it. I thought that someone must be playing a joke on them. But when I asked my mother later, she said it was true."
"Wow Grandma, that's incredible."
"Here I have something to show you." She opens an old box and pulls out a mask.
"We had to wear these all the time. to school, church, and stores"
"Can I take it to school?"
"Sure, but be gentle."
The oven told her the cookies were done.
"Now go tell your friends outside that I have cookies for them."
Things change, constantly, especially in the world of 2020-2021. But, as long as the Earth is still Earth, kids will always love homemade chocolate chip cookies.
