Richard Scarry’s What Do People Do All Day?
People leave their homes to attend work in various professions, make purchases at stores, go to routine medical appointments, and enjoy leisure activities with friends. It is comfortingly ordinary.

Mid-March 2020

Where’s Waldo?
Hint: He’s in a throng of people. Conceived in the tormented fever dreams of public health officials, Where’s Waldo? will go on to be adopted as a textbook in epidemiology programs to demonstrate the concept of the “super-spreader event.”

Oh, the Places You’ll Go!
Oh! Literally nowhere!

Goodnight moon / Goodnight Zoom / Goodnight, everyone judging my room

The Pigeon Needs a Bath!
As do I.

Where’s Waldo?
Hint: He’s at another super-spreader event.

The cycle above continues until a vaccine is distributed throughout the population, scientists develop an effective treatment, or everyone dies—whichever happens first. Sleep tight, little Johnny!
