Okay, so we’re free and clear from our visit to the local farmers market a month ago. We sampled about 10 party dips. My favorite was bacon and cheddar. Hali liked the crème brûlée. Pretty much how it goes. I like savory, Hali likes sweet. We sampled these with a two inch pretzel stick. The people selling this stuff make it clear: ONE pretzel~ONE dip! DON’T DOUBLE DIP!! Don’t be a dip shit.
That was 31 days ago, and we don’t have any virus symptoms. Just because we dodged that one, doesn’t mean we aren’t heeding warnings. No, although I’d like to, we don’t live in a cave. We are quite aware of the situation, and are following the sensible precautions.
Our Merry Way Was Cut Short
Our country had a stumbling and slow start, BUT we are now a family of four and we don’t point fingers, we keep them washed. And, after hastening our indefinite road trip, to a one week tour, we are in a semi-state of quarantine, and dutiful self observation.
What do you know? My wish came true! We are now living in a cave! Good thing I like the three other people sitting around the campfire every night. AND I just subscribed to my 30-day FREE trial offer of Amazon music.
What’s your favorite campfire music? Right now we’re listening to Five Years by David Bowie. This song came out in 1972. I didn’t realize before, but the 70’s was rife with dooms-day lyrics. Yeah, we may have plenty of marshmallows, but I’ll be out of a lot more than that, and this free music only lasts 30 days.
Ever hear Waiting ’til the end of the World by Elvis Costello? That’s a good one too. Again, written in the ’70’s. With all this music available, I can cope.
You too can get this FREE music from Amazon. All I did was holler at Alexa for a certain song. She said something, and I said, “sure”. Guess I started some sort of 30-day trial. That was simple.
Counting the Days
Oh hey, this is day 10 of our mini-quarantine. That’s good news! Only symptom: a touch of cabin fever. Exasperated by the visqueen draped on our windows for exterior painting.
Through Carli, we have first hand (a very clean hand) experience with this self-quarantine arrangement. We’re following her lead, she’s done this three times: in China, Dallas, and currently, Winter Garden. China’s population is over four times greater than the US, if they can overcome this, so can we.
Apparently the current top requested song on Amazon music is It’s the End of the World, as we know it, and I feel fiiine. An REM song from 1987.
All planning is limited to, today.
And now that spring has arrived, so has spring fever. Something we can all come down with! And, as long as our parkways aren’t packed with public, then Hali can whip out her camera.
