I went into the office today to water my plants and found my boss. Six feet apart, we had a rambling conversation just like old times. Except I didn’t hug her when I left.
I’ve had five-minute conversations with my mother as I handed her groceries or a full dinner plate, but this is the first real sit-down and just talk conversation I’ve had in days and days.
It was nice.
I hope to do it again. Regularly. Daily even.
I’m weary of this, but worry we’re rushing too quickly into opening things back up. The second wave of the Spanish Influenza was far more deadlier than the first. Let’s hope that was a lesson learned. Let’s hope that science and reason prevail.
