In the cannabis dispensary thread @StrangeGator asked a rhetorical question - "what else is there to do during a pandemic?" It likely was a somewhat glib, throwaway comment/question, not necessarily looking for an answer. Nonetheless, it brings up the point, our day to day lives will be altered from our usual routines as we willingly or unwillingly enter this time of "social distancing." Some of us, employed in the field of education will not be going to the classroom or interacting face to face with students. No doubt people in other occupations will also change their customary procedures or routines in one aspect or another. And not just work. We will need to substitute new activities for the time formerly spent watching sports on TV or attending sporting events - or concerts. Will new movie releases be postponed as theaters will no doubt see attendance plummet? Will you be changing plans for a vacation in the near future? How long do you think the enforced changes and suspensions will last? How long will we, can we, tolerate it? The situation has taken on a surreal aspect, as traditions and rituals are suspended. Will we find in their absence they hold less importance than we formerly thought? Will we fill our TV time with other shows, or read more, spend more time with family, exercise, or take up a new hobby with the newly available time. Are you angry over the suspensions or grateful the courage was found to do it as the financial cost will be great. Share your thoughts, impressions, frustrations, or resentments. Tell us what surprising things you might find you like about the closings. Or what you hate most about the situation. Use this thread to vent, but please leave politically oriented comments in the overheated establishment on the other side of the Plaza. They will not be welcome here.
