Rona

Tuesday, March 31, 2020

Rona is to blame for all our troubles right now. We are under a 30 day stay at home order because Rona can’t keep her hands to herself! DH and I have been self isolated for three weeks now, and are really missing Norm. He was the social icon that we took for granted. He encouraged us to go to restaurants, bars, visit families and friends, go see a movie and so many things/experiences we took for granted.

Then Rona came. She slowly pervaded our lives. We first became aware of her deadly presence through the news. But that wasn’t enough. Norm convinced us that Rona would never have the impact here like she did in China and Italy. But then....she arrived. On a broomstick. She quickly asserted herself into our daily lives...sports, concerts, gatherings. People became sick before they even realized that they had a Rona visit. But that wasn’t enough for her.

Hockey, baseball, basketball, NASCAR....all canceled. Restaurants and bars closed...take out only service. Church services canceled...during this most holy season of the year! Travel suspended, stay at home orders issued, and yet she’s still not happy. The death rate is climbing due to Rona’s kiss of death.

Rona. Foe. Enemy of the state. You have banished Norm from our lives. We huddle inside, waiting for you to die out. Yes, Rona...you hear that? We all wish you DEAD! We want Norm back...we CRAVE Norm! But I’m not sure he will be the same. I suspect we will still don our PPE for many months after Rona is banished, that we will still maintain 6 feet of space, that hugs and handshakes will be long gone from our social greetings.

Yes, Rona...you did that. Now go away. I’ll take Norm in any shape or form he becomes after you die.

Be safe Sparkies! 💕🙏💕

    What an interesting description of our present time. Maybe our returning "Norm" will be better for us than the one we knew before. Maybe we'll decrease our spending habits, and become wiser consumers. Or perhaps we'll decide we like eating at home with our near and dear. This could be a chance for re-creation. emoticon
