Pandemic over


Because the pandemic is over I am going out for a drink tonight with a friend. But it was hard to find any place open because of the pandemic.

"Wait, isn't the pandemic over?" I asked.

I was in the middle of the library where I work. It was open. It was full of people. We weren't wearing masks. It was like a dream. But it wasn't a dream. I was in a real place asking of anyone "Isn't the pandemic over?"

"Kinda." Someone walking by answered.

Finally, after a lot of searching I found some kind of Cider cocktails/Crepes/Cheese Board place in an obscure industrial part of town that is loosely rumored to be open tonight.

"How about this one?" I asked my friend.

"Sure." He said.

"And we don't mind climbing over the heaps of dead bodies to get there?" I asked.

What's done is done, we concluded.


If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
