ALL the story times!!!






Let me read you a story! 

In this post, I will share some of my story time videos. I know I have shared some on and off, but I haven't been super consistent about it. Like everyone on planet Earth, I have been through much lately. I began to hear rumbles of a pandemic in China in December. At first, I thought that even if it did come here, that America would be able to contain and eradicate it. All of my pandemic knowledge came from the movie Outbreak, made in 1995.

What I imagine Dustin Hoffman is saying, "It's going to be okay. We got this under control."

Instead of calm, and common sense and problem-solving we got this: 
If you could save a life by wearing a mask when you are out in public, why would you not wear one? It doesn't make sense. Then we had lockdowns (my state never did), testing issues, Joe Exotic (representin' my state!), murder hornets, locusts, mask protesters with guns, the very important Black Lives Matters movement (we need things to change), and probably more crazy stuff I forgot. Oh yeah, toilet paper shortage. Toilet.paper.shortage. And we are just a little halfway through the year! 

I am going to make some 2020 predictions:

-zombies but only zombies from the 1920s in flapper gear and when they do the Charleston, their remaining parts fall off because they are pretty much almost disintegrated by now

-unicorns are discovered to be real but they are really rude, come over uninvited and eat all your food

-Tom Hanks is the devil

-and we find out babies are really old people in disguise

Sounds unbelievable but you never know! 99% of my life consists of make my story time videos. I put about 6-8 hours a week of work into them. Some fall flat and end up failing to meet my expectations. Some end up with audio issues (the new YouTube editor does not let you fix volume!!). It is what it is. I just try.
And if it gets 5 views and they are all from my mom, that's okay with me.

So here are some recent videos I made. Enjoy, or not!
