Fiction seed

I was just a young boy when the world ended; December 31, 1999.

Sure, the internet survived and all the computers kept running, with minor glitches, but no one seems to remember that the thunderbugs disappeared. Pepsi Clear vanished from the shelves and suddenly there were things made from blue corn. BLUE CORN?!? Where did that come from?

Mostly, though, I miss the thunderbugs. And my sister, Mandy.

Nobody else remembers Mandy.
