The simple life
I’m not asking for much.
The older I get so my needs become ever more simple. I don’t hanker after a fast car or a bigger house. I don’t envy any of those people in advertisements who are supposed to convince me that my life isn’t perfect without their tacky produce. I don’t even need [much] more money. I can manage without skiing holidays. I wouldn’t mind seeing the Grand Canyon but am happy to forgo that pleasure.
All I would like is to be able to drop down to the village and sit in the sun outside the coffee shop and have a chat with a few mates.
It would be nice to drop into the library to chat up the librarian and maybe borrow a book or two.
I would like to be able to walk into a shop without having to queue outside.
Life would be better if I could chat to the shopkeeper without a fucking great sheet of perspex in my face.
It would be nice to be able to go somewhere where I’m not constantly bombarded with signs telling me how much two meters is.
It would be nice to switch on the television news even just once, without seeing the miserable face of Holohan droning on about deaths and disease.
My needs are very simple.
It’s not too much to ask, is it?
And so say all of us
It's getting sinister now. The lockdown has very effectively stopped the build up of herd immunity. So when the second wave comes, evidenced by the latest concocted figures, the next lockdown will be a little nearer to the level of control they have been wetting themselves for ever since they found George Orwell's famous instruction manual.
Save the NHS — they have lots of new dance routines to unveil.
You and me both.
The spirit of the Christian Brothers seems to have somehow infiltrated Irish administration. A friend from Co Laois was telling me that there were checkpoints on the road from Port Laoise to Tullamore and I heard from Dublin that on Friday, Gardai were at Howth Junction station making anyone in swimwear leave the train and return to the city.
Having got that far, what's the point in turning them back?
It's becoming more and more obvious that society in general is going to hell in a bucket and they’re not even enjoying the ride. The straw the broke the proverbial camel's back was this not-so-horrible flu type thing.
That being said, all I really yearn for is central heating. Otherwise, I'm much like yourself in my wants.
Could not agree with you more in my mind its all a huge scam the figures are been [ pardon the pun ] doctored die from falling down the stairs its down to the Wuhan virus. The words I'm beginning to hate hearing is ………………. THE NEW NORM.
