Question of the Day

How are you doing? How have you been coping with everything? Are you safe?

Mrs. C. and I haven’t left the house for over a week and last time we went out was for a supermarket run early in the morning. We’re fairly stocked and we shouldn’t have to hit the supermarket again for another 10 to 14 days. I’m a bit worried about the dairy situation though. I drink coffee with cream (no sugar anymore) and I’m drinking a lot more coffee than usual. I thought I had stocked up fairly well but may have to switch over to milk early next week. The horror.

Workwise, I’ve been working from home. Fortunately, there’s a lot of work I can do from home. At some point I may have to go to my office to pick up some mail, sign checks, etc, but I figure I can slip in late and keep any exposure to other people at a minimum. I certainly won’t be using public transit.

We’ve been having some zoom parties lately with friends and family. I’ve found that to be a big morale boost. Seeing the faces of loved ones who are also quarantined is good for the spirit.

I’ve also started to look for some online courses to do. I’ve broken my french flashcards out and grammar books and have been watching french shows on Netflix to retrain my ear. My house is looking pretty damn clean and I’m trying to use this time to reorganize my thoughts and find a newly found respect for everything we could do when we could leave the house.

I don’t know anybody yet who has tested positive for covid-19, although, I also don’t know anybody who has been tested.

I hope everyone else out there is staying safe.

Grocery store throws out $35K worth of food that woman coughed on in ‘twisted prank’

WTF is wrong with people?

A woman played a “twisted prank” at a Pennsylvania grocery store Wednesday by purposefully coughing on about $35,000 worth of food, which had to be thrown out, the supermarket said.

“Today was a very challenging day,” Joe Fasula wrote on the Facebook page of the Gerrity’s supermarket chain, which he co-owns.

“A woman, who the police know to be a chronic problem in the community,” walked into the chain’s Hanover Township store and “proceeded to purposely cough on our fresh produce, and a small section of our bakery, meat case and grocery,” Fasula said. Authorities are working to get the woman tested for coronavirus, he said.
