As  you said......<<"Social distancing".  It sounds so pretentious.  It's not social at all.>>

 

From the beginning, I've considered it "anti-social distancing".

 

Necessary for us to practice it under present circumstances, I suppose, but let's call it what it actually is.

I had a husband die 32 days ago indirectly related to COVID.  I had 2 dear friends a husband and wife who died directly related to COVID.  

 

You know what I am sick of hearing?   I am sick of hearing what others are sick of hearing.  GROW UP and DEAL with it.  God knows I have had to because others didn't want to "Hear" stuff or didn't want to be "Inconvenienced"  While these words may sound harsh, the death of my husband was also harsh.

@Miss Pepsi : I'm so sorry to learn about what you have gone through. In no way did l intend to understate the gravity of the situation. My sincere condolences to you, and anyone who has lost loved ones during this nightmare.
