“A blessed day to you, Ma’m”, a voice from
the ether said as a package landed at our feet.
“That looks like something that fell from space!”,
said the child. “Son, Mommy has to quarantine

mother exclaimed, “You told me he was dead!,”
mom said, looking at Dad.
“And I grabbed an extra thermometer.”
“I f’ing love you”
