What Day is it Anyway? #SoCS Edition Saturday, May 23rd, 2020

12 Comments

Choices aren’t terribly abundant these days. There are few places most of us can choose to go, to buy, to eat … But the choices we do have are important ones. For some of us, they’re life and death.

I don’t want to get on a soapbox.

But there are so many people not taking Covid-19 seriously, and it saddens me greatly. People who think it will never happen to them, or worse, people who think it’s a conspiracy.

Thousands of people went out today in Toronto because the weather was nice.

In a week or two, we’ll be locked down again like it’s March all over again. Not that I’m planning to do anything differently than I am now anyway, but it’s going to suck for people who truly have difficulties with having to stay at home.

And, of course, it’s going to suck even more for those who die or lose someone.

Patience seems to be barely a thing any more. And I get it–no one wants this. No one wants the level of change we’re experiencing. But the less patient we are, the longer it will go on.

People say they’re dying to go out.

I say, yes, they are. 😦

  1. Western New York just started reopening, and already people are nuts. I haven’t gone out, but hubby did and he said the traffic was much heavier than it has been and that the stores were busier – although he did say most people were wearing masks (it’s a requirement in quite a few of the stores). I’ll be going back to work in a couple of weeks when Phase II starts, and I admit I’m nervous about it. But I do have plenty of masks and hand sanitizer, and plan to stay away from everyone else (thank heavens I don’t need to take public transportation), so it should be ok. Keep safe and healthy, Linda, for yourself and your kids.

  3. Unfortunately, the people who don’t pay attention will be able to infect those that do. As Pam alluded, it’s like the Darwin effect includes our choices of people we spend time with.

    Take care, Linda – Stay safe.

  4. The virus stays the same while we change our actions. People don’t get it. We have to keep our precautions up as we venture oh-so cautiously and carefull out into the world, Linda G, most certainly.

  9. So very true. Los Angeles county will be one of the last counties to open up and it is too soon for me whenever it happens.

  10. This is very true. Some people need to realize the fact everyone needs to pitch in for us to rise out of this.
