It is the first day out of what most likely be a great many with my Ducks home from school. I could say they are getting on my nerves because of course, they are, but I can also guarantee that they would say that I am getting on theirs. This is a new thing we are all trying to squeeze ourselves into and it will be a while before the growing pains settle down a bit and we can all relax and get into a rhythm.
Elder Duck has remote school starting tomorrow morning, so that will help as he will essentially be gone for the entire time he normally would be, just upstairs instead of at school. I am sure there will be massive hiccups there too, but again, as long as we wait it out, the pain will stop and we will get to be where we want to be.
I, as I am sure you, have seen all of the memes telling the world that Introverts have been training for this since birth and, not gonna lie, some of them are funny as hell. I despise leaving my house when I don’t have to, but the one time someone tells me I shouldn’t leave my house is when my legs get itchy for somewhere to do and something to do.
Social Distancing, which I am sure will be a very hated word by a great many for years to come, is the only way that we can make sure the peak infections are spread out over a longer period. Yes, I am fortunate enough to know a wonderful scientist who did graduate work in Virology and I actually know that little thing as a fact, but think about it logically for a second and it is very easy to understand.
Everyone is out by toilet paper, toilet paper is gone, people go without.
Now simply apply that scenario to ICU beds, or respirators or any other medical equipment and you see that there is a significant issue in the world today and by literally doing nothing, staying home when we are able and maintaining distance, we are helping t make sure that the medical system can last for longer than the toilet paper did.
It isn’t precisely rocket science people.
