Masking

Friday, May 14, 2021

Woo, it's Friday!

I am just so unmotivated today....I've been cruising the Lands End site, shopping....

Trying to wrap my brain around this whiplash change in stance on masks by the CDC...what the hell were they thinking? First, as soon as you say "you don't need to wear a mask anymore," everyone who never wanted to wear one in the first place takes it off. I went to pick up dinner last night, just a couple hours after the announcement, and already the couple in front of me in line were maskless.

And second, what's with the "as long as you're vaxxed" nonsense? What are we supposed to do, ask everyone if they're vaxxed or not? Because of course the first people to take off their masks, are gonna be the ones who don't feel a need to get vaxxed. I can only hope they all get sick and end up on ventilators. Sorry, that's mean, but the selfishness of these people infuriates me. There was an article yesterday that said 40% - !!!! - of people in my county aren't planning to get a shot. We could have variants running rampant if that's true! And it'll just be too awful if we "go back to normal", then have a huge spike and have to go into total shutdown again.

Anyhow, for now the state and county orders are still in effect, not that that does much good. I guess we'll see how this all shakes out, but man, I feel like they just did a complete 180 with no warning. Why not say, once we get to a certain percentage vaccinated, then we'll lift the mask order, something like that?

Anyhow, enough about that. I got a four-mile walk in this morning and I'm definitely pooped, I've been hitting it pretty hard this week. But tomorrow will be my rest day, I've got an early hair appt.

Well, I actually have a meeting at 10:30 so I'd better get moving. I guess soon I'll be back to doing meetings in person! That'll be super weird after all this time. Anyhow, happy Friday!
