Clovid-19 – “I’m back!” Actually, it never went away. So, what do we do?
Yesterday, I discussed the use of masks. In previous articles, I brought up the concept of forming social pods composed of persons of like minds and risk. What we really need is a comprehensive family/friends plan by which we live and protect ourselves against this virus and potential carriers.
Your comprehensive antiviral plan should be custom made to fit your needs and beliefs. The government can certainly suggest what precautions should be incorporated into your plan but should not mandate them. This is a very sensitive subject!
When I was in Publix the other day, I asked a young woman a question. She was not masked and more than 6 feet away from me. I was masked with an N95 mask. The conversation went something like this:
Me -Excuse me, I … (she rudely cuts me off)
Her – If you are going to say something about my not wearing a mask, forget it.
Me – Whether or not you wear a mask is none of my business. I was going to ask if there were any places to buy fresh seafood around here.
Her – I’m sorry I snapped. I’m tired of being told what to do and all of the scare tactics.
People are tired of all of the mixed messages and suggestions coming from the government, doctors and the internet. So am I. Personally, I’m wearing masks, staying far apart from strangers and verifying what precautions family and friends are taking before I interface with them. I’m also washing the skin off of my hands. I’m reading and digesting everything I can about the risks of clovid-19 and how to avoid them.
What I’m not doing is telling you what to do. If you want to go sky diving, bungee jumping, or other risk-taking activities, no one tells you that you can’t. If you want to ignore the CDC’s suggestions, God bless!
I never did find a fresh seafood market. While I’m going to miss Chicago’s food scene, my waistline will benefit from the limited dietary choices available to me. We ordered Chinese from a local restaurant and was surprised to have gotten dog food. Actually, I don’t think my dogs would have eaten it.
By the way, I’ve lost another 1.5 pounds for a total of 3.5 pounds in 2 weeks. It’s slow going. My air fryer is rapidly becoming my best friend. THANKS, Lynn.
Here is today’s music and a joke or two.
As the storm raged, the captain realized his ship was sinking fast. He called out, “Anyone here know how to pray?” One man stepped forward. “Aye, Captain, I know how to pray.”
“Good,” said the captain, “you pray while the rest of us put on our life jackets – we’re one short.”
