The Daily Prompt: Digging Up Your Digs
500 years from now, an archaeologist accidentally stumbles on the ruins of your home, long buried underground. What will she learn about early-21st-century humans by going through (what remains of) your stuff?
The archaeologist was confused. Here it was, the year 2514 and she had stumbled across items she could not identify. What were these pieces of paper found in a box with images on them? Smiling faces, people standing together arms around one another, or seated at a table. What was all this colorful glass with patterns she had never before seen? What a find! These items did not seem to be from 500 years ago, but even before then! There were also books with pages that contained ideas about food- with measurements and pictures and directions of how to stir and something called sifting. There was a triangular shaped object, heavy, made of metal. Perhaps used in battle as a shield, holes in the bottom, maybe to spray poison.
The world must have been a very different place. From the looks of the faces on the pieces of paper, the world must have been a happy place for this person.
