A pure koincidence


My darling wife and I have been watching old seasons of Project Runway at our house. Fashion design is... interesting, and I don't have much more to say about it here.

Except that, in somewhere around the 2017 season, one of the contestant's names is...


Yes, pronounced just as you would expect.

Kovid is a very nice young person, and, as we are not nearly halfway through the season, I don't know how far Kovid gets in the competition. But it is mildly shocking to have people say Kovid this, and Kovid that, and have it entirely just mean a person and nothing else.

Even stranger, in the episode we just watched, which was a high fashion challenge where the contestants all had to use a single fabric print in their design, Kovid whimsically gave their model a facemask. 


I wonder how Kovid weathered the pandemic. I wonder if Kovid didn't call it "Coronavirus" for as long as they possibly could.

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.
