Not to brag, but I’ve been self-isolating for a full week already. I’m pretty sure I’ve saved at least 10 lives, probably more. I should note Jon is home with me, but his sacrifice is due to my sacrifice so really, I can take credit for saving probably closer to 50 lives.
You see, long before Covid-19 arrived, I was scheduled for my second total hip replacement (THR). Got my surgery on the 9th, came home on the 10th, and am on medical leave through the first week of April. Besides the relief of constant pain, there aren’t that many perks of having a THR, but one bonus was being able to lounge smugly on my sofa while all my sucker coworkers had to be at the office.
Not so much.
Two days after I got home, my office did the responsible thing – shut its doors and sent the staff to work from home. Looks like I’m not so special after all.
So now I’m home, and instead of taking medication for recreational purposes, I’m hoarding my drugs lest the apocalypse come and pills are the basis of a new economy.
Also, because President Half-Wit is not just a halfwit but also a danger to society, I’m at a loss to find anything remotely humorous about his “handling” of the situation. I suppose I do think it’s funny that, for sure, his “doctor” lied about his testing negative for the virus and in fact is probably positive and could possibly die. But it’s only funny if Vice President Science Genius is positive too.
A girl can dream.
These are dark times people. All we can do is wash our hands constantly, shower occasionally and hope to hell this administration gets exactly what it deserves.
