We'll never know, Phage. Might have been 5 minutes. Might have been influenza or pneumonia the next day.
Right. And I might get hit by a drunk driver tomorrow. No worries. I was bound to die before too long.
You might, if you venture out of your house. That's absolutely true. And, we're all going to die eventually...
The point that you consistently seem to miss in your argument to continue a shutdown, Phage, is the fact that what we are doing right no is not
"living". It is existing. Those are not the same thing.
Want to stay home? Awesome. Want to wear a mask when you go out in public? By all means, do so. That is absolutely you're right.
I want the opportunity to do my job the way it was intended to be done, and not over a freaking Zoom meeting. I want the opportunity to engage with
humanity in real time and human to human interaction, not virtually.
When I do go to the grocery store, everything I come into contact with has been disinfected to the teeth. No one has ever sneezed or coughed on me. I
have never sneezed or coughed on anyone else, either, including my own family. In my almost forty-eight years of life, I have not encountered the
situations in which we have been warned may cause us to contract COVID-19.
The only person I know that definitively had COVID-19 was my cousin, and he's a guard at Folsom Prison. He quarantined at his home, and is all good to
Stop promoting the fear mongering. None of us is guaranteed anything. The flu could take me out tomorrow. So could a drunk driver. So could a bus.
I do not want to have the limited time I have in my lifetime shut down over a virus that is not nearly as lethal as SO many other events that could
bring about my last breath.
