Subject: I've been playing my part....
In reply to: Comicality 's message, "The Shack's 'Lockdown Relief' effort is only hours away!" on 05:20:41 03/30/20 Mon

I've only left the house three times in the last two weeks, just to go to the local shop to pick up some grocery stuff.

The local CO-0P was a strange sight to behold. I went yesterday, and only three shoppers were allowed in at a time. The guy at the till had on gloves and other PPE.

My stepdad *might* have the virus. We're not sure. He's the only one who has been leaving their house to get supplies. And now he has a temperature and a cough. We don't have tests though, so can't be sure.

Thing is though, he's in his early 60s and smoked for nearly 50 years (he quit about 5 years ago) so there's some risk there. And while we never got on to be honest, I take no joy in him being ill.

Our government have it too. Three senior figures, including the Prime Minister. I fucking hate them and what they've done to the country. But I don't wish them to get ill either. Just to fuck off, but through democratic means not a virus. I'm not as callous as they are.
It is ironic though, because last week they were all in favour of it sweeping through the country, infecting (60%) 40 million of us, and wiping out hundreds of thousands of vulnerable people. And now they have it. As does the heir to the throne, Charlie. This virus doesn't discriminate between rich and poor.

I'm looking forward to your new releases, Com. Take care of yourself ((hugs))
