When COVID hit, everyone ran around like a headless chicken. They weren't sure if it was a real threat or an actual danger. One false move, and they could cripple their economy, kill off half the country's jobs, and bankrupt the population. No one wants to go down in history as THAT guy. On the other hand, no one wants to go down as the guy who killed off the population either.

It's a tough position to be in, and I'm so glad I didn't have to make those kinds of decisions. I just had to stay home collect some of the growing national debt, and get considerably fatter. :D

My country spent billions on a bunch of vaccines, and I think we've now got 4 approved for distribution. Regardless of all that, we still have to wait in line behind countries with higher populations, thus higher needs, and closer proximity to the factories.

I envy you. I can't wait to be able to visit family again or even go to a movie.
