I went out to the country for my friends birthday party.
Old friends, lots of hugging.
They were trying to find things to entertain me and kept reassuring me that everything was fine. Something they thought would really entertain me was the VFW full of motorcycle guys. It did. But, it was risky. All outside, but much standing too close and lots of ‘close’ talking. We found an abandoned classic car full of kittens. Everyone wanted to see kittens.
Many people my age reported that they believed they already had covid and were sick 22 days. 1 guy said he coughed up blood, but was fine. 1 believed her aunt had died of covid in early March.
I dunno. Things are gonna heat up with seasonal flu. I think we all outta just step up our lockdown. I got the sense that the ‘lockdown’ doesn’t really exist for large segments of the population. I think we have to be extra careful now through whenever the vaccine comes.
When the weather turns, there may be social pressure to socialize/dine indoors. I don’t think I will do any of that. Buy long underwear. Wear multiple layers, maybe. Stay outside? That will make people feel bad. I don’t think they will tolerate that. The weather is turning. Need a new seasonal plan.
If you need something for Christmas, these things work well. But, they will singe your hair if you get too close. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Hampton-Bay-48000-BTU-Stainless-Steel-Patio-Heater-NCZH-G-SS/302563841
I think I’m gonna try to not see anyone, now, until the vaccine is out. It’s not really possible to NOT exchange hugs and stuff. Best, probably, if I hold off until vaccine is out. IDK. I have no cold weather plan for covid.
