Captain’s Log: Day 5, Social Distancing

There are no rules during Corona. It seems we have entered into a reality where time doesn’t matter. Like a Las Vegas casino or the days in between Christmas and New Years Day.

Or that movie Groundhog’s Day where every day is the same.

Our calendar is wide open until July. Every planned event now with a red line through it. The weekdays are the same as the weekends.

We wake up. Drink coffee. Eat breakfast midday. And again an hour later if you are my children. And then ask for lunch at 11.

Get dressed at some point in the afternoon. Some wear sweats. Some wear shorts. Only half wear underwear. And as the only female, justify that a bra isn’t needed since you aren’t leaving the house.

The day has no start and stop until you realize it’s 6 pm and haven’t even thought about dinner. And by 8 pm, you just need quiet and for no one to ask for anything. Or touch you.

Later you look in the mirror and wonder how long you have had chocolate on your face. And also why none of the people in the house told you.

Social norms also seem to be suspended since we have no in-person contact with the outside world.

Bathing? Seems like a lot of work.

Flush the toilet? Maybe next time.

Wear shorts to the post office on a 26-degree day? Seems logical.

Search on Amazon for completely random, but necessary items, like trampolines and moccasins? Absolutely.

Spend time organizing the junk drawer and ranting and raving about the sand on the floor while the rest of the house crumbles down around you? Why not.

We are about a week in friends. I feel that this is starting to get serious.

PS. We still haven’t found toilet paper. My children do not seem to understand how serious that is.

God speed.
