Discouraged from gathering publicly, Susan had half-jokingly suggested a Skype dinner date. When everyone's plate was finally dished up, and modem connections double checked, she and her guests began their meal. This was really happening.
Albeit only briefly, the group managed to sneak in chatter about their lives in-between lengthy facts about Corona virus. The occasion was Susan's birthday, she was turning 50 this year, and despite being restricted from gathering, the show would go on.
Each guest had received their invitation via mail a month prior. In the envelope, attached to the card was a sachet of purple powder. They were instructed to bring the the substance to the party venue, but alas.
Line after line, the stranded party members inhaled the substance until eventually one of the group began singing the opening melody of Muzi's "Mncane," all while slowly undressing. The rest of the attendees followed suit.
This is life in the time of a modern pandemic, you'll need good music to set off a drug-fueled, stream-based dance party. Make sure it's Muzi's music, and make sure to check out the South African's 2019 album, Zeno, for more.
