Shower Thoughts: What if Earth is like one of those uncontacted tribes in South America, like the whole Galaxy knows we’re here but they’ve agreed not to contact us until we figure it out for ourselves.
For the data geeks:
Are you experiencing Lockdown Fatigue? I am. Somehow I am exhausted. Everyday living is so much heavier. There was stress in my life prior to the pandemic, but now, EVERYONE around me is also stressed. Can two negatives create a positive? Sure. I’m trying to keep to a schedule for sleep, work and get outside, trying to write, and reach out to a friend once a day. Trying. It doesn’t always happen, but I think about doing it. That counts for something, right?
*looking left and right* …So, want to hear something super secretive? Some secret folks are meeting in secret places and are having secret social parties. It is not unlike the Speakeasys of prohibition; underground bars that served liquor after it was outlawed. Prohibition in the United States was a nationwide constitutional ban on the production, importation, transportation, and sale of alcoholic beverages from 1920 to 1933. For every action, there is an equal reaction. Yesterday a social post went out from Washington State Department of Health-
“We’ve been getting reports of “coronavirus parties” in which uninfected people are mingling with #COVID19 positive individuals intentionally to try to contract the virus. Bad idea! Gathering in groups in the midst of this pandemic can be incredibly dangerous and puts people at increased risk for hospitalization and even death. This kind of unnecessary behavior may create a preventable uptick in cases which further slows our state’s ability to gradually re-open.”
Stop the spread and stay home. It’s hard and it sucks, but just do it.
