The COVID-19 Pandemic is legit.
The COVID-19 pandemic. It’s officially a thing. And it’s not a good thing. There are loads and loads of news articles, blog posts, youtube videos, and Facebook threads filled with opinions, tips, and ‘facts’. But let me tell you; there is only ONE thing you need to do right now. ONE.
The one and only thing you NEED to do during the COVID-19 pandemic
Stay. The. Fuck. Away. From. Each. Other.
Literally, that’s it. Stay home. Don’t invite people over. Avoid going to the store unless you really, really need something. Cancel all the non-essential shit. I have lots of opinions regarding the economy, our mental health, educating the children during this weird-ass time, and hoarding of toilet paper. But those are OPINIONS. Maybe I’ll write about them, maybe I won’t. But one thing that opinions do not factor into is this ‘social distancing’ thing. AKA: stay the fuck away from each other for the love of God!
The numbers are in YOUR favor, but they are not in OUR Favor
I love math. And I am dying to launch into a big long thing about the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic here, but that’s not the point of this post. Besides, there are already a TON of great ones out there. The gist is this: Yeah, you’ll probably be fine. But a lot of people won’t be. And your decisions affect EVERYONE. Not just you.
Let me see if this helps… Everyone knows the line ‘Every time a bell rings an angel gets his wings!’, right? Well, here’s a new one for you ‘Every time a selfish jackass defies (social distancing), someone’s grandpa dies!’.
Guys, I get it. My Dad is in the hospital in a totally different state right now and I want nothing more than to go be with him. But that’s selfish. I canceled my trip out there because it’s the socially responsible thing to do. I love my Dad. And I’m sure you love yours. So you’re welcome. I am NOT visiting my Dad in order to help protect yours.
This is completely unprecedented
There are so many predictions out there about what life will be like next week/month/ year and honestly, they’re all crap. We have NO idea what will happen. Aside from figuring out some good toilet paper alternatives, we’re in the dark on the future with the COVID-19 pandemic. There is only ONE thing that we know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that will really, truly, help us all. And that is STAYING. THE. FUCK. AWAY. FROM. EACH. OTHER.
All of the ‘facts’ regarding the COVID-19 pandemic are still being worked out. How exactly it spreads, does it REALLY spare children, how long it lasts in the air or on surfaces, the contagious period, hell even the symptoms aren’t fully understood. We don’t even have enough tests to determine how widespread it already is! All we really know is that it exists and spreads person to person. What’s the fix for that? You guessed it…
STAY. THE. FUCK. AWAY. FROM. EACH. OTHER.
