I hope you’re all making the best of your pandemic lockdown catching up on some games.
We are practicing social distancing here as well, of course. Though, given that I have spent the past eighteen years working by myself from a home office, it feels an awful lot like business as usual.
We went out of town for a couple of days last week, before everything started getting locked down. The day after we got back, our six-year old developed a fever that kept spiking up to 101F and a nasty persistant cough. The chances that he had picked up Covid-19 were ridiculously low, but still, with everything going on, it was a lot scarier than it otherwise would have been. When his fever persisted for a few days, the pediatrician had us come in, and he tested positive for Influenza B which, while not Covid, is pretty nasty for children (in fact Covid probably would have affected him less).
So my wife and I are pretty strained and exhausted, on top of facing a whole lot of uncertainty in the weeks and months ahead. Fun stuff.
