I'm social distancing myself from silly people, talking on the phone or writing to people who believe this whole pandemic bullshit. When the person on the line expresses worry, I'll say,
" I gotta hang up."
"Because I am practicing social distancing from silly people. I'm afraid I'm going to catch your stupid."
I'm glad they have the X's on the floor. It's not virus that is contagious. It's stupidity. I want to stay away from them, too.
Six feet is good. It's preventing me from slapping some sense into them.
I'm changing the message on my phone. "I'm socially distancing my self from stupid people. If you think this pandemic is real, don't ever contact me again. I don't want to catch your stupid."
Or when I'm invited to another session of digital jail -Zoom or Skype - I'll say:
"No thanks. I prefer genuine people. Floating digital replicas of your faces scare me. I demand real people to communicate with."
The next time some idiot with purple gloves and mask on tries to tell me something, I'll pretend not to understand him and force him to take his mask off.
I'm listening to my neighbor's garage across the street. There must be a half dozen folks smoking a bong. Good for them.
I pedaled my bike today by the local hospital. Real quiet over there.
The Mayor of Houston pleading with the criminal element to "take a break until this crisis is over" was pretty hilarious. If it's one thing criminals are afraid of, it's the flu.
The Kaiser Permanente personnel in the hospital and clinics are not allowed to wear masks. The grocery clerk is threatened by a cloth bag. Chris Cuomo conveniently catches the bug.
Under certain conditions the coronavirus may be deadly, but the stupidvirus is deadlier.
