I like to imagine, 20 years from now, some curious young person, maybe a child, perhaps writing an essay for school, visiting my 81-year-old self with questions about this pandemic.
"Excuse me, sir," he'll say, approaching my Purell pod carefully so as not to activate the bioalarms. It takes him a few tries before I notice, because I'm busy watching an old episode of "The Office."
"Jim kissed Pam!" I'll tell him enthusiastically, and his dad will place a firm hand on his shoulder. This is important for the older folks, he'll tell the child. Just smile and nod.
