Too Soon

Humans are disgusting.

Everybody’s heard about the new CDC guidelines: if you’re fully vaccinated, you can go without a mask. Some stores aren’t relaxing their mask policies and still requiring them if you shop with them.

Costco is not one of them.

I’m not happy about that. We’ve had a year, an entire year, fighting people who believed that wearing a mask somehow violated their “rights”and now we’re just going to shrug and say, “Oh, you said you’re vaccinated? You don’t have to have a mask.” How many people are going to be lying to us? Already we have teenagers walking around without masks; Wisconsin has just started vaccination efforts for them this week. None of them have gotten a jab, let alone two.

It’s early. It’s far too early. But that doesn’t seem to matter.

Yes, Prime and I are fully vaccinated. We will not be changing our routine. We will keep wearing our masks. We will keep social distancing. We will stay home as much as possible. We will not travel often. We will not be dining in restaurants often and will take our food to go. Neither one of us can say that we trust people. Because we don’t.

We had an easy level apocalypse. We completely blew it. There’s no way our society will survive if we have to face zombies.

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon--official and non--since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.
