Modern Art

“Did you make your reservation yet, Jerry?” Annie asked.

“What reservation?”

“Joseph is putting his unique abstract paintings on display at the Museum of Modern Art,” Annie said. “Did you forget?”

“Well,” Jerry responded, “I thought they had shuttered the museum due to the statewide stay-at-home order.”

“Actually, the governor has opened up some businesses and services across the state, including museums, as long as proper protocols are observed,” Annie said. “So they’ve moved forward the date of the museum’s reopening.”

“That’s great, Annie,” Jerry said. “I bet Joseph must be thrilled.”

“Yes, he’s thrilled,” Annie said, “although he’s still having trouble getting his head around it. It’s all a bit of an abstraction to him.”

    I don’t think Jerry had been waiting with anticipation.

    I still wouldn’t want to spend a lot of time in an enclosed location like a museum even with protocols in place…. we just need to hold on until all the vaccines are done. HOPEFULLY by fall so the kids can trick or treat this year. Nice job on all the prompts!
