Last Sunday we noted the parade of calamities that is 2020, and posed the notion that if 2020 was one for the books it deserved a museum….but what would be in the gift shop….besides hand sanitizer, a mask, and a roll of toilet paper, of course?
A few suggestions were practical, one was sad….and one was brilliant. Marcia G., I salute you!
We’ll leave the comments open for a while, so there’s still time to add your thoughts on what bumper stickers or T-shirts would say in the Year 2020 gift shop.

Sounds like a winner
Something’s in the air of 2020. If you must breathe, then wear a mask.
I wonder what people looked like under their masks.
Masks, masks, masks.
Shine and share your light
A datebook with no dates
T-shirt or bumper sticker: Thou shall not COVID thy neighbors. Please wear a mask.
Tears from all of us who have lost a loved one to the pandemic and natural disasters.
