I loved Tom Hanks playing Forrest Gump, and I especially loved his motto: “stupid is as stupid does.” As there are a horrifically huge lot of stupid people running around these days, that motto should be in every town in every state. In fact, it might be a great idea to have that tattooed on stupid people.
Look, I really don’t like to be rude, but seriously—we ARE living in a pandemic. We need to do the whole social distance thing, we need to wear masks out in public, we need to wash our hands and sneeze or cough into our inner elbow, and we need to be SMART about where we go and what we do. I’ll be the first to admit that this whole thing is a huge pain in the butt, however, this is where we are for now and we can’t ignore it. THIS VIRUS IS A KILLER.
While I believe with all my heart that we will eventually have a cure for the pandemic, it’s going to take time. In the meantime, if we want to live through this we have to be careful. I’ll agree that masks are no fun, but you can get fun masks (a new fashion statement) at least.
I’ve ranted enough about the virus and massive stupidity to the point that even I am sick of writing about it. Let’s just to the right things and let’s stop moaning about social distancing and all that jazz. When this does finally pass, we can laugh and dnace and run around the block naked if we care to. But for now, please: MASKS ON!
