“We’re reopening this coming November! We’re here today to paint the walls and throw away stuff we don’t need and get ready to make merit for the reopening. We hope good things will come our way from now on. It’s been months since we closed.
Sadly, not all of the old team will be here – they caught Covid and wanted to move somewhere remote, but we will be here. We’re happy that our boss in this office has given us work.
Y’know, I almost died of the virus. There was only Auntie Ning here who escaped it completely. I hear that your level of antibodies goes up after getting over the virus. But for heaven’s sake – I will never let myself get sick from it again!”
