The age of unreason — 4 Comments

  1. I always felt Grandad was cantankerous rather than grumpy. When everyone at the moment is feeling grumpy, the contrarian position is to be upbeat, buoyant and sanguine about the future!

     

  2. Timbotoo is a ex-colleague of mine; a great guy, I like him a lot.   Sharp wit too, and his joke about Black & Decker lives in my memory.

  3. Well, to be honest, I always had a sneaking suspicion that your cantankerous old self was actually a good'un behind a keyboard and that's alright. You're enjoyable anyway we can get you. That being said, I pretty much feel the same way about things. However, his current 'age of unreason' really hasn't changed life around for myself and the wife that much mainly due the fact that we won't let it.

    We don't wear petri dishes over our faces masks or dress up in surgical garb or any of that nonsense. It's actually fun watching the "believers" all dressed up in mask and glove pushing their carts around with panicky looks in their eyes and giving us a wide berth when they see us coming. We also enjoy going up the down aisles just 'cuz we can.

    The only things that we'll really miss are the so-called 'non-essential' small businesses and restaurants that will never open again since they've already gone bankrupt due to being forced to close down over two months ago. There weren’t that many to begin with and now there will almost be none at all.

    By what I can tell, it seems the snowflake generation has won after all.
