Monthly SimLit Short Story Challenge: June/July 2022 Theme

 OHHHH I am so sorry!

I went off on vacation and forgot to publish this.

I will change it from May/June to June/July.

I am sorry for the neglect but life has been so busy and by the time I sit down at night exhaustion sets in and I am too tired to do much.
