The 1st place that I went, I got kicked out for not wearing a mask. Haven’t been there since before covid. Didn’t know the rules. Every place has a slightly different procedure. Its tricky if you don’t go out much.
The 2nd place was ok, but there was some congregating of people that made it difficult to maintain social distance. I waited until people dispersed. They gave me a mask.
I didn’t think that people would recognize me with my mask, but they did. So, there was quite a bit of conversation that I was absolutely unable to escape. People really wanna catch up and talk. A lot has happened. People have a lot to say.
Finally, I went to the discount grocery store. I was extremely uncomfortable there. Way too many people. Way too close of quarters. I vowed that I would not come back. However, when I saw my savings, compared to the price gouging at a typical grocery store, I was shocked. God I miss discount foods. I might return, despite the danger. I got around $100 worth of food for $35. Worth it.
Overall, going out was not easy or clean. I wasn’t able to maintain good social distancing. People are far too comfortable in public when they wear masks. My experiment with going out didn’t produce great results. Dangerous.
I obtained valuable gossip, though.
