Intro. My continuing efforts to document the moment. [Whither?]
Awareness of the outside world. Not everyone is able to stay home. I can, so I do. Although, the outside world is making that decision easier every time we go out. But I get ahead of myself.
Let’s say you are a person who believes there is a global pandemic afoot. Let’s say you need cat litter. Let’s say you go to the cat litter store.
Sign on the door.
Social distance markers on the floor.
Acrylic barrier for cashier.
Once again, you are the only customer wearing a mask.
Cashier is not wearing a mask. Not interested? Not mandated by corporate HQ? Not provided by corporate HQ?
As you check out, the customer behind you blows past the social distance marker, drops stuff on the counter, and stands right up in your space.

Stay safe. Stay sane.
