Day 7 – Total confirmed cases in US: 26,747
The numbers have septupled in less than a week.
The opportunity to “flatten the curve” has passed and we won’t know for a while how successful our social distancing has been.
Welcome to the first weekend without restaurants, bars, theaters, and zoos.
In keeping with our need to do our socializing without society, I’d like to raise a virtual pint…
…to my fellow shut-ins; to those keeping love alive with phones and Facetime, and sexuality alive by any means necessary; to those who are using this sequester to heal a wound or learn an instrument, especially if that instrument is their heart; to those who are losing their jobs and their health; to those who will not survive this plague; and to those surviving on love and dreams of better days.
It is my good fortune to have the best that can be hoped for in times like these: a sequester-buddy to ride this out with, somebody who would share my disease, someone whose disease I would share.
