PITY PARTY – TABLE FOR ONE
Rochelle’s hot tears trickled down her cheeks. “I missed my kindergarten party on the last day because of measles.”
“Seriously? This still bothers you? That was over sixty years ago.”
“Don’t you see? It’s come full circle. I’m missing another party. It’s enough we had to cancel our fifty-year reunion last year due to COVID. We worked hard to make our fifty-plus-one reunion a huge success without virus worries.”
“It’s a great party.” Annie smiled from her square. “You should be proud.”
“This sucks. It’s not how I planned to spend my evening.”
“You mean on Zoom?”
“Stricken with COVID.”
