My ear hurts. The one I can still hear out of. This sucks, but also doesn’t. Perhaps today will be a welcome quiet day for me? I could write more, since there’s nothing else to do these days, and without hearing things like people talking, I may be able to concentrate better…
I woke with the ear pain this morning. I am not prone to ear infections at all. I can clearly remember only one ear infection ever, and that was some years ago. Never in childhood or any other time when I was sick with Meningitis. Which is interesting because the illness caused me to lose much of my hearing…
Yesterday evening, I took my kid to the rink for the first time in seven-ish months. She had to be dressed in full gear except for helmet and skates. There would be no dressing rooms available, no parents allowed into the arena, no use of the water fountain to refill bottles of water.
Toronto began a mandatory face-covering (mask) by-law on July 7, 2020 for all indoor places. Here’s the pdf: BY-LAW 541-2020
Anyway, I hate masks in public if there is a chance of having to communicate with someone. But I wear my mask and have been even before it became a by-law because I don’t want your cooties on me. 🙄 AND, I don’t want to pass them on to someone who is compromised.
I got used to wearing the masks, but I rarely go out and when I do, it’s the same old places I’ve been to many times before. I know what to expect there.
But today, I went to a bulk food store and only because mom said you no longer have to have an employee with you to scoop your product. You can scoop your own product now, like before covid.
So I went. But I knew immediately that it wasn’t going to be easy.
It appears I am completely, utterly alone in my hardship and plight. 🙄
I have neither hardship nor plights of any kind. Most of the time… 😉
Something happened today that was a little unusual. Perhaps I will entertain you here. It has to do with this unique situation we all find ourselves in, this covid/pandemic/restrictions/protocol thing we have been forced to adjust to.
