After two Saturdays lost to COVID lockdowns, my daughter and I returned to our normal routine. We delivered eggs where we chatted with neighbors briefly. We hit the grocery store and bought the week’s food. And we brought a small flower to our friends, our ploy to visit them and check in on them in general.
I spoke with the neighbors for about five minutes, maybe ten. We spoke with our other friends for maybe fifteen.
I feel like I’ve won the socialization lottery today. It’s more interaction than I’ve had with people (other than my family) in two weeks.
Silver lining: feeling such connectedness in such a small amount of time! Who knew it was even possible?
