Nanny, masked, brings lobster rolls to the graduation party.

My grandmother came to visit for the first time since the pandemic began. It was my brother's college graduation day. We sat distanced in the lawn as names were read. My brother processed around the house. We surprised him with video congratulatory messages from neighbors, family members, friends, and past teachers. You could see everyone's eyes smiling above their masks.
