By Ravi, the Vice President of Pumpkins
Let me introduce myself. My name is Ravi, and I am a pumpkin. As you probably know, a pumpkin pandemic has hit the entire world. Each and every pumpkin patch has been affected by the pandemic. It is a bug that makes us pumpkins rot and then all the farmers have to throw us into bins that say “TRASH” on them. So everyone has to stay in their houses and stay six pumpkins away from each other. This way we have distanced if one of us has the virus. We have to wear weird cloth things the Health Pumpkin Organization calls a “mask”. So anyway, I am the VICE PRESIDENT of all the pumpkins, so my job is to protect the people. The president I work with got thrown in the bin, so now I am technically the president. The rules I listed at the beginning of the story were some rules we created to keep everyone safe. Everyone follows these rules so nobody has the sickness in our patch but in other places in the world, the pandemic is much, much worse. I am also a writer and this is my journal. No one knows I have a journal yet, not even my own kids! I also have a YouTube channel where I create the newest rules and I decide what to do and the world comments and gives me feedback (trust me, my videos get a lot of likes!).
Right now, we are in the season of fall. It is my FAVORITE time of the year because we are the stars of the show. Halloween is right around the corner and this year there will be no pumpkin carving parties for anyone. All the pumpkins love pumpkin carving parties because we get to have different faces and emotions. Some of us are transformed into bats, witches, spiders, and more!
There are even contests where people win over 1000 dollars trying to carve us!! But this year we can forget all of that. Though, I am sure that little kids will carve their own pumpkins and have their own parties in the safety of their home because this year being safe is more important. This is a picture of me about 45 days into the pandemic (that was about 5 days ago).
So that is my story. Remember folks, if a huge pandemic hits humans, follow these guidelines. Because if pumpkins can do it, then super-smart humans can do it too!
- Everyone has to stay in their houses and stay six pumpkins away from each other.
