The Corona looks the second weekchapter three dear Mister, judgmente dear mister, judge render, I hope youare very well and nobody you know, has...

...called the pandemic. My name is Livy and I am writing to youbecause it says at the start of your program that you are a real judge andnot someone who is acting as a judge for the cos. I was going to write toGod, but my mom says I don't need to decide if I believe in him yet and also there is lots of differentgods to choose from. I tried asking God's stuff before, but he never gotback to me. Plus, I don't know his Amil address. I call pave your Amiraladdress from the telly. I wanted to ask you a question because I don't know anyother proper judges. There is nothing wrong with your program. It is verygood. My mom started watching it when she got made to stop working she'd,never seen it before, but she said it's...

...her new favorite because you're verysarcastic and aren't afraid to call an idiot, an idiot. If you see one, Ithink sarcastic means you are very part of your own jokes. I tried to watch itwith her one day. It was about a lady who let her dog off the lead and it gotrun over and she thought it was the man fault and taunted him to pay her moneyas punishment. You judged that it wasn't the man's fault and I thoughtyou were right. The man didn't want to run over the dogand he was sad. He didn't he was just going to the shops anyway. I thought you were good atjudging.

I don't have a lot of money. If youmake me pay anything, but I am a good saver. I still have money left overthat aunt. Claire gave me for Christmas. I was going to wait until my birthdayin three and a half months and then by a poppy, but if I have to give it to you,instead, that's okay. I Trust your judging also before you ask and allowed not tobe in school. Just in caty thought I was bunking, I'm not school is causedbecause of the pandemic. You can only go to school if your mom or dad's anurse a doctor, a policeman, a fireman...

...or works in Saint Fry's at first. I was very happy about notgoing to school, but I miss it a way bit now I miss my teacher, Miss Meroe.She is very strict but fair and she likes it. When I write stories she said I had very good imagination,which is also what my mom tells me when I try and explain to her, why I can'tdo my chores right then, when she wants it, I know that everyone has to dothings they don't like, sometimes, especially at the moment. That's what Iwanted to talk to you about Mister, judging er, Miss Manro asked our classto write about what we will remember the most about the pandemic and how wefeel about it. I had written mine, but I didn't getpicked to read it this week, but I will...

...have to read it next week and now I'm alittle bit worried mine is very different for my friend's stories. Myfriend's stories were all very sad. My friend Milly's Papa died and I wascrying because she was quiet. I would be so upset if anything happened to mypapa. I can't wait until I see him again, which mom says will be soonbecause Nicolas giving him an injection dad says he likes Nicola now, and hewants her to be in charge, not Baris, because Baris will poem about how muchhe doesn't like Scottish people. I don't think it was a very good pointbecause I saw him on telly and he wasn't very good at speaking. He justkept saying and all the time and getting his wordsmixed up.

I think politics are arguments, butnobody gets to be the winner. I told Papa not to worry about hisejection and it isn't that sort which was a little bit of a white line. I hadto get an injection because a horrible boy named short pushed me off. The Sea,saw and made me get stitches in my arm. I had to go to the hospital and it wasactually really really short, but I told Papa it wasn't sore so that hewouldn't get scared and do go.

We drew a big rainbow together for thenurses me and mummy and Cora, but mostly me and mommy, because Cora can'tpaint very well because she's just six, she we only use the yellow paint andshe kept going over the light. So now the Red Bit has e yellowing Daddy, said he's a lots of ringos Ers,but ours was definitely the band. EXCUTING is mister, judge vender.

I am very sad about all the poor peoplewho died in the pandemic and I don't like to think about it for too long,because it makes me frightened and upset, and I have to make myself thinkabout something else or I start crying and then mom gets upset because I amupset you see. I didn't write about the nurses for captain at Tom or aboutanyone else dye. I think I maybe should have written about those things,because that's what all the other people went a classic, but I wroteabout the thing that I'll remember the most, and that is my man and dad andhow, before the pandemic, they were very busy people. We have done loads of fun stufftogether, like playing hungry Hifeli...

Karaoke we've seen our frozen and one and twococoa, and if I new one, that's called Soul, which made my dad cry, a good cryto sad cry. He said he wasn't crying and he just had something in his eye.But then he went to me so I knew he was crying. It was happy crying though so.That's okay, one really good day. Mummy and daddytook me and Cora for a walk up, Arthur seat, which is a hill, not a chair.There was a lock at the top with Otters in it, and I took a picture on onceforand then dad saw a man with glasses on fall down a hill and get covered in mud,and he laughed until he criedi like...

...good, crying again, not a sad cry whichmade me laugh and Cora, but I don't think Cora got the joke. She justwanted to join it, but the best time was when none did dancing. Videos withme: We've done load now. My favorite is the dance Micky one because at the end,dad joins in and pretends to be a monkey and looked really silly and momlaughed and then kissed him really hard, which was rose but also nice anyway. That's what I wrote aboutbecause that's what I think I will wemember the most about the pandemic,but now I feel I'm might be really selfish and not a very nice person, butthat is what I will remember and not what Mis Bera asked us to write aboutwhat we won't remember.

So, Mr Judgmen, now you have all theevidence. Could you please judge me on whether I need to pay money aspunishment? I could write my story again, so it's more like the rest of myclass, but that would make it lie, and I definitely know that lying is back. Thank you for reading this and being agood judgment. I hope you get your injection soon love living x axis dear Mr Judge, render was performed byUlana McDonald, Scott. It was written by Ker Mc Kelston.
