I know what you’re thinking: did he fire 6 shot or only…. oh, sorry that’s from a movie I was watching. But you get the point: we’ve got to learn to cope with this somehow. To those not worrying and struggling with how do survive this…
What’s your secret?
Booze? I’ll cop to that, but in moderation. Sorry, but I can’t do hangovers anymore.
Calm Gummies? Yes, that’a a real thing. They are infused if you know what I mean.
Going to Subway with Ar-15s and rocket launchers (?) – though I suspect those aren’t “real” rocket launchers. Do we know if the virus is even aware of AR-15s and rocket launchers? You know the staff at the Subway couldn’t think of a way for the day to get any better than having this bunch come into their store.
Some of you might think this is fake news, but no…
It’s not. And remember, we’re all in this together.
It’s nice that they don’t think it’s intimidating to walk around with semi-automatic weapons. It’s the American way, they say. Which it is, provided you’re the right color. I wonder if the cops would have been so understanding if the group had been made up of young black men. Would the media know what to make of it if it were militant lesbians?
It’s just a question.
Apparently, we don’t do boredom well when it’s thrust upon us. On our own, of our own choosing, as a way to get out of laborious chores we have no interest in? No problemo. Forced by the cavalier hand of nature that does what it wants? Houston, we have a problem.
We’re restless, bored, and unhappy.
That’s why we drink and scarf calm gummies.
Now before you get to worked up or verklempt, the country is, slowly in some places, supposedly quickly in others, opening – there I suspect it’s a matter of not worrying, being a daredevil, standing up for American values, or asking yourself the rather ominously interesting question of whether a haircut is worth dying for? I notice when that comes up in WH briefings, it’s characterized as taking one for the team, or as a war metaphor of going into battle.
Dying for your country does sound better than for a haircut.
If it were only that simple.
I need a drink.
