Ou:ch.
Perhaps: the fact that most people
Don't: even notice as they skim an email
Will: make you feel a little bit better?

Grrr: Hurt my wrist at work
Typing: One handed is lame
Two-Three: out of ten pain is also lame

Likes: That wife is full of sage advice
Typing: with both hands hurts?
Then: don't do that?
Truly: a sage

Re: Aethera
It is a: salve
Though: it is also frustrating that people don't read emails
Read your Boccob-damned emails: people!
...: just not that one I sent.

Today: we went on our grocery expedition
There are 2 nearby locations of: H-E-B
One: that's closer, a straight highway drive
Another: that's farther away, requiring a slow drive through a forested neighborhood
The first is: newer, and became our regular spot as soon as it opened
And, so far: everyone there has been good about social distancing and wearing masks

Today: we decided to go to the one that's farther out
Because: it's a nice drive and a change of pace
It is also: in a wealthy, exclusive neighborhood that's out-of-the-way for anyone that doesn't live there
So we thought: it'll probably be less-crowded

It was: less crowded
But: the wealthy people of the neighborhood must be the kind that think Coronavirus is a hoax
Because they don't: wear masks, social distance, or look kindly upon people that do
We received: an abundance of dirty looks from the kind of folk that wear particular hats
Our personal space was often invaded by: distracted wives in active-wear
Though there were: many reasonable people from the neighborhood that also looks upon their unmasked peers with disapproval
When you don't wear a mask: you're exposing everyone around you to greater risk
Even if you don't: believe it's real, or that you have it
Wear your: face-condom
You: jerks


We: won't be returning to the wealthy-people's H-E-B anytime soon
Though, we might take more-regular drives through their: "living forest"

I: haven't left my house since Feb. 28th.

All the: days just bleed together.

I have MS: and my immune system sucks now.

April: was a month of ulcers and bacterial infections in my stomach.

I'm: better now.

Sadly: I didn't lose much weight during the past month.

I'm: tired of water, broth, and bland foods.

On a happy: note, I am financially ok and have whatever I need delivered.

Time: has no meaning.

I: managed to keep going out till mid-March
With: a medical treatment I needed badly
And: only succeeded in driving my anxiety level
Through: the roof. (Tension headaches stink. )
(I: probably should've just called it early, but hindsight...)

I'm: sorry to hear you've had trouble,
But: I'm glad you're doing better now!
I: might take ulcers and financial stability
Over: the alternatives some people face.

My: best to everyone having a hard time!
Reach: out to RPGX if you need to talk,
Or: vent, or whatever.

(Warning: first world complaining coming.
I: and my family are healthy and financially stable
for which: I am very thankful
and: my heart goes out to those who aren't.
But...)

Grrr: my boss's boss (company pres) keeps saying then want to pull us back in
from: working remote and
it: "will happen soon"
then: extends it
by: "just a couple more weeks"

I: have a very temporary setup at home
that: works (mostly)
but: I would put some money into improving
if: I thought it might be
semi: permanent or
even: longer than the end
of: this month
but: would have no use for when I go
back: to the office full time.

I've: thought long and
hard: about going into work
late: at night and
absconding: *temporarily* with
the: comfy chair that is cold and
lonely: at my desk.

My: first time as a really real teacher and the last semester was cancelled.

We'll: see what happens come August.

I've cancelled: a trip to Paris, a cruise to the Yucatan, and trip to visit friends in Dallas then Oklahoma City.

But: I have a beach trip next month that is still on like Donkey Kong.

Last: year, I had a beach trip and spent the rest of the summer in Sicily.

Anybody: want to share dream trips or trips they want to take when things settle down?

I: have friends in Tempe I need to visit, a friend in Cordoba Argentina to visit and another in Tokyo Japan.

I: dislike international travel, but it's great when you get there.

It's: mothers day tomorrow

Mine: passed away two years ago

On: one hand it feels like forever

On: the other hand, I still catch myself in the moment's I would just pick up the phone and call her.

Sucks: I can't really go properly visit her as her urn is at my father's, and he is a high-risk group.

I: know I am not old as many on here, but growing up sucks. She was my backstop in life, and there are many days I wish she was here.

Emotions: aren't something I am really competent at experiencing/relating to
Somehow: I need to manage a functional conversation with my father

There's: only so far the bar can move
On: a gentleman's agreement
Before: it's no longer valid.
At: some point you need to put your foot down.

Yay: getting pocket money for reading and reviewing three YA fantasy books.
Grr: so many things to do, so little time!
Why: does my to-do list grow so fast,
While: things get checked off so slowly?
