I know, I know, I know: the past year & a half has been rough on everybody. Dealing with a Pandemic, political strife, and everything from race riots to conspiracy, Doomsday Prophets spouting-off the End of America has started probably has us all feeling a little too down, a little doubtful of a Happily Ever After.
It seems like conversations on whether or not you got a shot determining your eligibility to work or go to certain public places has become just as common as asking good Ol’ neighbor Wilson to forgive you because you forgot to return his Pyrex casserole platter.
And those damn things cost about $20!
Seriously, though, talking about COVID-19 is common. Common in an absurd way. Absurd to me, anyway. Having different opinions on what is being done is common. There will NEVER be a topic without opposing sides, conflicting views… EVERYONE feeling & thinking & believing their way is the RIGHT WAY! Or, that what they are told & fed is an Absolute.
It seems someone has to be for something, or against something.
Hell, to just not care is just a manifestation of being against something…?
And, yes, that is a question mark behind that sentence. Because I don’t know if it is right. It’s just a philosophical MAYBE! I do have certainties & convictions in my life…. but I don’t know if that is one of them.
It seems to be in the genetic make-up of the Human. Opposition. And Unity.
Now, to tell you a little bit about my world, My Special Lady Friend is a Nurse Practitioner. She has online, Telehealth appointments.
And, from what she has told me, most of those appointments involve people that have tested positive for COVID.
(I wonder how much those people are affraid?)
There is a ten day quarantine period. It’s close to Christmas, and these poor people need to be away from their families.
And my poor Lady has to be the one to tell those poor people they cannot have Christmas with their families.
But stay POSITIVE! There are still worse things in the world. Missing Christmas with your family is hard. Trust me, Reader, I know. Finding things to be negative about is easy – at times, even justifiable. Most of the time, it’s juvenile.
Stay strong for your loved ones, though. Sickness is not horrible for what it does to you. The true torture, if you really think about it, if you can get your head out of your ass long enough to see, it is what it does to family members… to boyfriends, and to girlfriends… to co-workers that laugh with you when the day is dragging on & on… to the mailman that knows the names of everyone living in the house… hell, to anyone that has been good in your life.
That is what good people are suppose to feel: concern & care & many other things I won’t spend the time typing-up.
My Special Lady Friend is not on the phone, delivering the hard news.
I think a hug & a kiss are in order, It’s been a hard day.
Guess what: she cares, too.
