Pandemic Days

I have coped by smoking dope, no not really, but Linda wants us to share our experiences about last year, so here we go.  I got one Covid-19 test last year and it was not that bad and about a week later they said I was negative, which is a good thing.  No coronavirus was found present but I am still not sure how good these test results are as I have heard about some showing false positives and I guess that means that some had false negative results, so it was a year of uncertainty.  I have maintained proper social distancing and worn my mask when I went out for the rest of the year.  I did get my hair cut in August, but I still have not gone to the salon to get my toenails clipped since before all of this craziness started over a year ago.

I think that Biden is doing a good job handling the virus, but he is not getting any Republican support and I heard the other day that some Conservatives are criticizing him for not giving Trump enough credit for doing such a wonderful job with his Operation Warp Speed.  The ass kissers will never stop and even though we got rid of this dangerous man, it appears that he is lurking around the next corner to raise his ugly head again.  I have been double vaccinated with two shots of the Pfizer vaccine just over three weeks apart.  I understand that in the UK they are vaccinating 12 weeks apart, in order to get more people to receive at least one dose and over here critics are wondering why we are not doing the same thing.  I am not going to get involved in that battle, but I did go to the UPS store to get my Covid-19 Vaccination Record Card laminated, just in case I want to travel anywhere.

I think that we have come a long way from the empty toilet paper shelves that were in every store at the beginning of last year.  Most of the people that I see when I am out in public are wearing their masks and the ones that don’t are just A-holes.  Some people want to jump the gun and return to the way things were like before the pandemic struck the whole world, but I feel that if everyone could just remain patient for a few more months, that we might be able to achieve that herd immunity goal where life would go back to normal.  I realize that all the people will never be able to get along with each other, but acting responsible is important for mankind to survive.  The best I can do is be myself and hop that things get better.

  1. I’m glad you’re doing okay, Jim. I’m always loved that Jim Croce song. Listening to it again was a treat. I think it must be in my top ten all time favorites. Have a good weekend!

  2. Yes, there is a longer cap between the two vaccinations over here and I’m happy with that.
    I won’t be happy if the government decide that shops can re-open earlier than planned.

  3. Being oneself is what all people (in a Free Country) want to do. Including A-holes. whose opinions and needs aren’t dictated by anyone else’s opinions. That’s just my opinion. 😉
    Have a great day!

      1. I was saying we’re free to think anyone is an A-hole and they’re free to be one (or not) in a free country. That’s what freedom is all about. (It’s messy but beats the alternative, my friend.)
