Gud moarning united in social distance awesomites!
And, LOL, the Prison title for this Corona column wasn’t right from the first day on but is by now, after 8 months of “lockdown” nothing but a joke. Today the gatekeeper at our local foodstore didn’t even bother looking at me or chasing me with his spraybottle of hand sanitizer. And my mechanics and me we gave up wearing our masks when I visit the workshop long ago.
Apart from that we have glorious spring weather and everything is fine but the sad fact that the Western Cape is missing all its tourists. 😐 Hubby and me, personally we couldn’t care less, but we feel sorry for the gastro and tourist industry. I guess what some experts predicted already in the beginning and early stages of the global lock down: The world will be vastly different after COVID-19, and nothing will be the same ever again.
But we’re humans. We cope. We adapt. That’s what makes us the top of the food chain in the animal kingdom. All other species will have to wait for evolution to take care of them. Either that or going extinct, right? Or becoming our pets.
Anyhoo, were was I? Oh yes, life right now feels nothing like prison. Not even like quarantine or classical lockdown. Oh, we have a curfew from dusk till dawn or so, but hubby and me are middle aged white pensioners, we don’t have any business going out after dark anyway. We have our computers, and The Pirate Bay, so we’re never bored. 🙂
Sorry, I don’t feel like talking about COVID today; I don’t wanna think about it or make any medium- and long term plans regarding our future. The situation as it presents itself right now in Europe and in Europe’s leading nation, fuxn Deutschland, won’t allow making any plans of any kind. I’m hearing Angie Merkel will talk to the nation soon and probably will take them into lockdown again … and fuk all our visiting plans anyway. 😮
So why bother with anything?
Oh shit! Seems some thoughts about the world pandemic are inevitable …
I’m so happy not to be an American nurse. 😐
Oy vey, the last not-lockdown country in the world’s gonna join us. Too many deaths. 😦
Schools are open, schools are closed, schols are open, schools are clo… fuksake, does nobody think about the poor children anymore?
Guys, my high spirits from 10 minutes ago is gone. Completely.
Still hoping to see y’all again, laterz
