"FALL"-----the first day--- and we are part of it--
I went to Foodland yesterday--AND I HEARD SOMEONE CALL MY NAME--
-like---no-one talks in the grocery store anymore--
I looked around, and the person behind me, masked--was looking at me--
It was Edith Goyton--
I hadn't seen her in years--
She said something about being tired of all this Covid stuff-
I heard myself say, "Well, you wear a mask and social distance , or your die!"--
Lord love a Duck!--How abrupt I was!~ --
Poor Edith could hardly wait to get away from me---I could see her and her cart disappearing up the aisle towards the check out--
That was the extent of that conversation with Edith!
"Did you see anyone you know?" Himself asked me when I returned home.
"Well, no-one talks", I replied, and I began to think how life in stores used to be---
-One could not get away from people, because people always wanted to visit , in aisle number whatever--
It's not that way anymore--
You do your shopping, and you get home--as fast as you can--
Will we all end up , when this Pandemic is over, as "antisocial human beings"?
Imagine me --"ME"--- being so abrupt to poor Edith---telling her to do as she must do--or die!
Heaven help me! --(Mom's favourite expression)
Maybe we will have to take lessons on "Social Graces" --post Pandemic--
Who knows eh?
Hopefully--in time-----we can return to normal--yu think?
I must remember this!
