I’m here with Pat the Cat, aka Patrick, my neighbor next door.
His owner for once, knows that he’s here since he’s visiting upon request.
I needed a sit down, okay on the floor, but still, with someone I could talk to who wouldn’t argue through his mask.
Of course a few sardines never hurt.
It’s about the
PANDAMMIT and all that’s going on. My library for instance, that’s only taking returns you leave in a big box out front that will be quarantined for 3 days.
If I want a book, I email, and they leave it in a paper bag on another table with my name on it. It’s left me quite sad not being able to go in. I know it’s all there is right now, but I ask you…
how did this happen?
How did our world become incarcerated by an invisible foe that we’ve yet to conquer.
English Susannah, English.
When will there be a FUCKING VACCINE?
Is that better? Blink twice for yes.
Then we have my building that’s decided, any guests have to sign a book, like registered sex offenders, so they know if there’s an outbreak, who was here.
How bout a break out instead, beginning with…
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?
Pat, I see you’re now blinking like a traffic light.
Then a friend called who was invited to a party where rules will apply…an outdoor barbecue with space to spare.
I don’t know of they’ll be chicken Patrick, but he’s afraid to go.
No, you can’t go in his place, but I told him, pull yourself together, buy a nice bouquet and make an appearance. If it’s too uncomfortable you leave.
What do ya mean, why a bouquet? Because you bring something when you visit someone. It’s obvious you’re not from Connecticut.
I told him, you can’t live this way. You take care of yourself within the parameters of calm rationale.
Oh for Christ’s sake…
YOU WEAR YOUR MASK, WASH YOUR HANDS AND STAY 6 FEET OR MORE AWAY.
Jesus Patrick, when did you get so persnickety?
Shit, I forgot, you’re a cat.
Alright alright, milk comin up. Is 2 % okay?
Humor folks, might be all we have left.
