I didn't want to make the previous post too long, so here is just a little bit more, perhaps somewhat repetitive, to explain what I was doing in the target store with the face mask on.
I have not worn a face-mask until today. Let me explain: I do not want to be a part of this hysterical response, most especially now when there is no “flatten the curve” excuse even. I have been hanging out with friends, going to the park with mine and other kids, and going to work without the mask (even with it being required recently – we have our share of rebels).
I did not lie about my not wearing masks to my wife, so she has been getting more and more worried and sleepless about it, just making it worse. She means very well for the family, but this Infotainment Panic-Fest has been a big a problem. In my opinion it is a matter of perspective too, and I am old enough to have seen similar Oriental virae come through without this ridiculous LOCKDOWN crap (a term very recently only used for Maximum Security prisons) and the rest.
Now, it’s either a) lie about it to keep the calm – can’t do this, b) explain my perspective to her – not working, c) keep telling her the truth and get many tears and bad relations, or d) promise to wear the masks at the stores and work. It’s (d) now, but this BS better end soon!
I'm as scared about it as the next guy, if I ever think about it, but we've just got to all remember - we ARE all gonna die. In the meantime, there is no reason for this craziness.
The wheel is turning, and you can't slow down.
You can't let go, and you can't hold on.
You can't go back, and you can't stand still.
If the thunder don't get you, then the lightning will.
