I’m sitting here playing a game on my phone. My nephew likes to play this game also. It’s a puzzle game called Flow.
And I’m thinking about how good I am at this game. Like, look at the puzzle a couple seconds and then just complete in one stroke.
Pretty awesome, if I do say so myself; but also catches me off guard sometimes as to how easily I solved this puzzle.
In keeping with the tradition of learning a lesson I almost immediately forget I’d like to posit an interesting and confusing statement:
It isn’t about NOT doing something. It’s about DOING something.
Let’s start with the truth. I don’t like Apple.
The company, not the fruit.
As I leave work – a frozen custard shoppe which also sell smoothies, coffees, lattes, and baked goods – I see a small family or two sitting in the grass of the lot next door. They are in the shade of the trees on a blanket just relaxing, while one of the kids is running around trying to get his kite to fly. Presumably, they just bought some desserts and were enjoying the warm, spring weather. It was a beautiful sight after all the seclusion brought on by the latest global pandemic.
But I gots a problem with this!
For anyone who is unaware, I am going to explain a simple truth about how the world operates. Specifically, how people attempt to explain and defend their side.
And it all starts with my sister.
I had a dream.
People were lined up in front of, what began as, a supermarket. They approached one small, standing-height desk with an attendant, much like you would see at a movie theater. After passing off something and possibly getting a paper from the attendant they would proceed to another area; a counter, sectioned off from the lobby as in a bank.
I am confused beyond all comprehension. As usual… I just don’t understand what exactly it is that I am supposed to be doing right now.
And, no, this isn’t an existential crisis thing… this time. I’m talking about the topic of the month: Coronavirus.
And what the hell we’re supposed to be doing about it!
