My Top 10 Takeaways From The Global Pandemic
But like any top 10 list, your favorite may not be here…
As the pandemic, hopefully, continues to wind-down in the U.S., here are my big takeaways:
You really should wash your hands.
'Touchless’ bathroom fixtures now make much more sense.
The television show ‘Monk’ isn’t really all that funny, anymore.
Hand sanitizer is not good for a leather steering wheel.
Public sneezing jags are bad. Remembering to take your allergy medicine before you leave the house, is good.
The inability to congregate was not an assault on houses of worship, considering that the heathen couldn’t go to Burning Man, the children couldn’t go to school, and I couldn’t go to the library.
Masks have not been permanent. Therefore:
a) Masks were not an assault on good ol’ American Freedom.
b) Masks were not a prelude to forcing all good ol’ American women to wear a hijab.
Frightened white people make and share really racist memes on social media (see item 7b).
Conspiracy theorists pivot faster than a professional NBA forward.
The lingering sense of futility just won’t go away. Not because of the pandemic. Not because of the lockdowns. Because both pandemic camps - Those who think the pandemic was real, and those who think the pandemic was a fabrication of the liberal media, Anthony Fauci, Bill Gates and the ghost of Steve Jobs - Will continue to say they were right, long after it’s all over. Which means, sadly, that this argument will linger on social media like symptoms on a Covid long-hauler.
