So i decided to make X happy by taking him/her to the I/O’20 conference.

Someone: Are you joking? (That would be your mind voice)How can you take someone to the conference during this pandemic time and by the way WHO ARE YOU? at first.

Me: Well i am the guy who watched all the I/O’s from 2015–2019 on Youtube. To be more precise

  • Watched I/O’16 on Jun 2017
  • Watched I/O’17 on Jan 2018
  • Watched I/O’18 on Jun 2018
  • Watched I/O’19 on the same day itself

And this time i am going to watch it a week early.

Someone: Yeah that’s what i am asking how you are going to watch it or take someone with you. Have you heard about the pandemic? No one can go anywhere and no one is conducting any physical events. Everything has been canceled for this year.
