Do old people become farts once they start to smell bad?

We don't care. : - D

Day 4 of WFH. 

Joan says play dates are now cancelled with the moms.  She is resisting the urge to go to stores and buy more.  Went for a walk last night and the city was deathy quiet   :P

My handwriting is terrible.  I have a note to myself on a post-it on my laptop.  Near as I can figure it says "panther c0ck"

People are idiots....  they think “self isolation” means “don’t dare go outside”!

Well... actually it does mean that.  My family had a big argument and bit of research and the Ontario version of it is "stay in your house".   NZ and Netherlands are a little more pragmatic - why not go for a walk ?  But my parents are staying indoors.

I know.

Yes, IF you have had the possibility of coming in contact by traveling, etc. Then you should stay in your home.   If you’re just not taking chances, then going outside is fine.

I agree with you but that's not what the literature says.

No that’s not what they’re saying to do.

Recommendations to stay home are only for people who traveled.  Even if you may have been exposed, they say to  “go about your day but avoid crowds”.

Yes, my parents travelled so they are to self-isolate:

Self-isolate means to:

stay at home and monitor yourself for symptoms, even if mild, for 14 days

The skin on my hands is getting dry from washing them every time I touch some filthy hazardous door handle.

Sure but 'self isolate' only has one meaning on the public health page whether you travelled or not.

How is Kimmy and her girlfriend doing ?

Feeling pretty down because of all the craziness.  One of my usual hang-outs was open today and I did manage to get my yearly quota of green beer. All the other places I like to visit are closed until further notice. Friends are laid off, businesses are losing money, everything is unsettled, everyone is just waiting for the next shoe to drop. I have never experienced anything like this.

I've recovered from the bad cold I had last week. Linz came over Sunday morning and insisted we have sex. After a week of feeling like the human equivalent of a dumpster fire, it picked me up.   While I was sick she came over with a bunch of food and medicine and tea and stuff to take care of me.  Even though  I'm the one with superhuman physical gifts, legendary kung-fu fighting skills, and mystical powers, she's actually the strong one in some ways. She seldom gets sick, she just shrugs everything off.  She's so good to me.  When I'm mentally all over the place, she's calm and confident.

Lindsey is laid off right now, from her day job as well as her waitressing gig.  I'm back at work.  We have a small office, we don't have customers come and go from our building, we're pretty unlikely to be exposed to anything.  There's only one known case here in town so far, but people are acting like we're in the opening stages of the zombie apocalypse.

We have sunshine now, and I went for a walk last night.  I might as well be outdoors while I'm practicing social distancing. Before too long it'll be time for hiking and kayaking, and I'll be able to self-quarantine for a few hours out on the lake or up in the hills.

Self containment going well.  Meeting a colleague/friend for a game of pickleball later (I hope that doesn’t make me sound like I’m 85...).   No contact sport....   Separated by a net, so it should be good!
