I was down in the village yesterday.
I gave Penny a walk around and we stopped outside the [shuttered] coffee shop to pay our silent respects. It’s a while since I have seen such depression in a dog. We left a mental wreath outside [well, Penny did a large pee against the gate which I’m sure is a canine equivalent] and carried on our walk.
Anyhows, with the walk out of the way I had to do some shopping. My first port of call was Doc’s reception desk to collect a script. I should point out that I was dressed for changeable weather with my coat and hat, and out of respect for Doc’s receptionist I had pulled my Snood up to cover my face. The receptionist looked up from her typing. She gave a little shriek and nearly fell off her chair. I quickly pulled down my Snood [thereby no doubt exposing myself to half a ton of Virus, if the “experts” are to be believed] and doffed my hat. “Oh, it’s only you, Grandad” says she which I found a little insulting. She could have left out the “only” bit?
So I had learned my lesson. It seems my headgear and face covering presents a greater threat to humanity than the Virus.
My next port of call was the general shop [or supermarket as they call themselves in a grandiose sort of fashion]. I didn’t bother with the Snood though I left my hat on. I wandered around all the aisles [both of them], got what I wanted and then had a grand chat with the owner, who like myself is a Coffee Shop Refugee. We bemoaned the loss of our meeting place and agreed that the whole setup was a fucking farce.
As we chatted I looked around. There were a few customers, all locals, and not one was wearing a face nappy. It was just like the good old days. We could all smile [or scowl] at one another. Speech wasn’t muffled. It was very refreshing.
And before anyone says anything, this county has one of the lowest Virus rates in the country.
I’ll say nowt…..
What do I have to do to ask for asylum in your county? 😉
A few brown envelopes in the right quarters should do it.
Did you wear the dream glasses with the hat and snood?
Just the ordinary ones. It's probably for the best as she would have freaked out altogether.
If it was only thus over here as far as face nappies were concerned. Especially since Vermont has the lowest covid-19 cases/deaths of the entire country. Fortunately, I don't have a coffee shop to mourn over. Can't say the same for our favorite Chinese restaurants though.
The biggest Chinese manufacturer of adult nappies has just won a contract to supply the illustrious motherland with face nappies, huzzah. DaddyBaby
"Fucking farce" is about to happen to the whole of England tomorrow unless a sleet of quanta of sanity particles hits our parliament building. No, it won't happen. These are control freaks and wannabe dictators. Common sense has left the building.
