Title: W-T-F happened?
Topic: Wasn’t Covid in our rear window…#GuessNOT
Why is everyone testing positive NOW!? We thought were heading outta this “thing?” I thought the stands were going to be filled with something OTHER than “flat-Stanleys?” Weren’t we heading to the ball parks and arenas and concert venues again? Didn’t we have plans for some Broadway shows? Even my kids were preparing to fly off to college to meet some actual people and professors! You want me to wait another year?!!
I guess, much like YOU, I THOUGHT a lot of things were happening, or about to happen at least. But, like, you, I was wrong. Again. Or, was I right, and some of the stupidity around me was wrong? Hmm… Either way, we’re all sharing the same space, the same air, water, and, unfortunately, the same collective results.
You mean the Bros. Bezos didn’t invite you and your bro to get outta Dodge and into space too? Me neither. Maybe next time, Geofredo. In the meantime, I just wanna watch my damn football team this month. I wanna see my favorite players and coach enter Canton in a few days. We won’t spend too much time on them, but they are mine, and I’ve waited long enough to see them (since 2020). And, I’ve remained masked and distant and silent, and….if I don’t get my way, I’m gonna have to be duct-taped to my office chair (not unlike some of these rabid air travelers). People, we need to relax and agree that if we don’t follow the same protocols, we will remain in this lunatic space until we run out of—water…What? Now, we’re running out of THAT too? You’re #KillinMe !
Oh well, I’m done venting…see you in the fall…hopefully…I’ll be the #DryOne
