Hello, awesome readers!
Here’s a confession: I don’t watch the news.
I prefer to live in my own non-perfect bubble where my biggest concern on most days is a mysterious car parked in front of my house. My desk sits in front of a window and when I look up from my screen to mull over a sentence, well, that’s usually when I notice the car. It’s also when my brain goes into serious Nancy Drew mode. How do I know it belongs to a serial killer? One just knows these things. And then the hamster steps in saying, IMPOSSIBLE, MONA. SERIAL KILLERS ARE SMARTER AND LESS OBVIOUS THAN THAT. Have you NEVER watched Criminal Minds???
My chosen response is to ignore the hamster. Except …
THE CAR HAS I-BELONG-TO-A-SERIAL-KILLER WRITTEN ALL OVER IT, HAMSTER.
This was my life up until about three weeks ago. Today, the world is different. It’s hard NOT to know about what’s going. Especially when you go to the store and everyone is wearing masks and latex gloves, looking like they’re from a low-budget science fiction movie from the future.
Where once we had Walmart greeters sporting kind smiles and grandfatherly ‘good mornings’, today we have people standing at entrance doors wearing space suits, and spritzing us with hand sanitizer from a safe distance.
Which brings me to a few questions:
Do you think that this current situation is the earth’s way of cleansing itself from too many assholes?
Is there a way to monitor how much the air has healed in the past several weeks, since everyone and their car has been staying home?
Did you ever think a time would come when working from home would be a dream come true only to realize that, ‘Oh. This isn’t that much fun after all’?
Does anyone have any Netflix recommendations???
That’s probably my most pressing question at the moment.
