So far this global pandemic has been great fun! I already had a mostly indoor, firmly seated in front of a computer, lifestyle. I’m also an introvert who doesn’t particularly care to interact with other humans. Staying home every day is significantly better than going to work and seeing people I would rather not associate with. I’ve always thought those people were diseased. Now I know they are.
I’ve never understood the American (?) idea that your co-workers are your friends. They’re not. On the spectrum of friend to enemy co-workers are much closer to the enemy end. These are the people that make you do things you don’t want to do, tell you things you’d rather not know and generally make a potentially fine day a living nightmare. Now they’re all dead or gone or hopefully dead. You just have to endure their two dimensional images on meetings, but it’s much better. They can’t touch you and you can’t smell them. Win win.
So far really the only effect covid has had on life is that I’m driving my car considerably more dangerously and at far faster speeds than in the past. Why? Lack of enforcement of motorist rules. If police aren’t going to stop me for driving too fast apparently I’m going to push the envelope and go even faster. Why? I’m not sure, but it feels great and that’s perhaps reason enough. :)
