The Peep decided he needed to start getting into shape so he went to an outdoor spinning class – but to his horror, he found out that he’d gained so many ounces during the pandemic that he no longer fit into a regular-sized bike like the rest of the class participants.
The Peeps, having sensibly realized it is too unsafe to travel during the pandemic, have just bought a pool for their backyard. But they aren’t yet experienced at their new outdoor life – the Peep children have gotten bloated from staying too long in the water, and the Peep parents have gotten a nasty sunburn.
The Peep stands sadly watching the inequities of vaccine distribution and all the vaccine line-jumpers posting celebratory photos. (and he further knows that his turn will come last, after the doctors figure out how to administer the vaccine to someone with no arms, and in fact not even any muscles for an intramuscular injection).
The Peep has been looking forward to a post-pandemic life. But she didn’t realize how many ounces she gained during the shut-down, and when she tried on all her pretty dresses, she sadly realized that she can only fit into her baggy old school uniform.
The Peep is trying to enjoy the cherry blossoms but is consumed with worry about whether he is violating the no-mask policy, even though he has neither a nose nor a mouth to cover up.
