There is a note next to the computer. It’s from Kwami and it reads “Vortex of Craziness!” Just one exclamation point. I think three would be appropriate, just because it IS the summer of 2020.
I tutored with a teacher who worked with younger elementary students. She was hilarious, and she always said, “Add ‘doom’ to anything; it makes it more powerful”. She also inflected the statements to shutter, extending the length of ‘doom’ to several syllables. The Summer of Dooooooom. Virus of Doooom. Mosquito of Doooooooom. It works with just about anything.
And it adds laughter and lightheartedness where we need it most! I saw Melissa, the teacher, a couple of years after tutoring. While moving, I donated a lot of my elementary teaching supplies to her classroom. “Boxes of Doom.” She had forgotten her old standby and was thrilled for the reminder.
Vortex of Doom. Kwami will hate that!
