Old McDonald’s White Farm -
We knew Hymie was special when we brought him in from the fields that warm September, when we were young and shallow fellows.
All of us wanted to be the one chosen to eat him. But I was the one who drew the long straw.
As I held the warm globe in my hands, I sensed that it was too warm. So I quickly ran to get my thermometer, and applied it. Four degrees above normal!
All thoughts of eating Hymie instantly fled my mind. I grabbed Hymie and took him through a drive-through test area. He tested positive for COWVID19!!
Thus began the long saga of Hymie and his struggle with COWVID19.
I soon learned of other papayas that had tested positive, which only Increased my anxiety!
