upside/downside

downside!!!!! my coworker tested positive for COVID on friday. she’s been out sick all week, but she says she’s feeling better, hope it holds. i haven’t seen her since october 9, and i’m feeling fine, but — symptoms can develop between 2-14 days, so, basically it’s rude. another rude thing — you can either have mad symptoms, or no symptoms, or light symptoms — all the options! just seems pretty rude. so i’m been feeling phantom symptoms (“is my chest feeling tight? my throat is kind of hoarse!”) and worrying a bunch about infecting patrons unwittingly, very cool. also doesn’t it seem insane that it’s 2020 and our prevention methods have not much improved since the old days? basically stay inside, wear a mask, wash your hands, godspeed. upside is i get to work from home for two weeks, which means not QUITE so much rushing; no lunch planning (as much as my lunches have been planned, very loose use of the word); mad sweatpants; general home civility.
