This can be a photograph of us from proper earlier than the pandemic hit Queens. You may inform it was taken in February 2020 as a result of all of us look ten years youthful. Nobody knew but what the yr would carry. We had not too long ago began sharing the condo on a brief foundation. Sophia had simply shipped her automotive over from Los Angeles. The weatherman on the native information predicted snow later within the week. I by no means drove in New York, and Sophia solely knew Southern California, so we purchased this shovel at a ironmongery shop, in case we have to shovel it from the snow. We did a foolish selfie collectively for Fb. Our very first snow shovel! The weatherman was mistaken, and it by no means did snow. The shovel languished within the automotive trunk all spring, summer time, and fall.
It snowed on Thursday, 9 months later, on the day earlier than we had been interviewed about our quarantine images on the Right now Present. We had been so centered on organising our new ring mild that we forgot about shoveling the automotive. On the Right now Present, we joked with Al Roker. He was touched about how our quarantine expertise has made us love one another as a household much more.
The following morning, we found that town had plowed snow throughout Sophia’s automotive. The snow had turned to ice. There was no solution to transfer the automotive. Our shovel we purchased was trapped within the trunk. We blamed one another for the scenario. A neighbor approached to congratulate us for being on TV. We had been now native celebrities and could not argue in public anymore!
For 3 days now, we’ve got been chipping away on the ice surrounding the automotive. It’s nonetheless trapped. I’ve spent my time doing two extra interviews about how a lot our household loves one another, whereas arguing with Sophia about her Toyota Prius rusting within the streets of Queens.
It is good that we’ve got been getting some media consideration for my images. However I might commerce all of it in a second to return to the household within the photograph from February 2020, once we weren’t so confused after ten months dwelling collectively throughout a pandemic.
