In the past week, we've had people over for dinner and we've brought dinner to a friend. Everyone involved is in at least one of the ChiCom Flu risk groups. None of us care any more.
When you thought about what was happening from the virus' point of view, we were all putting ourselves at risk, just the same as if we had done this 1, 2 or 3 weeks ago. If we contracted it and died, what difference would it make if we died a few weeks earlier or later? None.
So the lockdown did one thing - kept the hospitals from getting overwhelmed. Other than that, it did nothing. Well, that's not entirely true, it gave us time to learn about the disease from our own data sets. Both of those benchmarks have been met. The hospitals are so underwhelmed that they're going out of business and we understand the disease.
The only thing the lockdown is doing now is punishing us.
|Filets, cooked in a cast iron skillet and drizzled with an herb butter. They were awesome. If we get sick eating such things with friends, then so be it.|
