MASKS…a rant

Medicine, Mask, Coronavirus, Doctor

I was out shopping today.  I am SO SICK OF SEEING PEOPLE WITH MASKS UNDER THEIR NOSES OR ON THEIR CHINS.  You can’t get into places without shirts and shoes.  You can’t smoke in public places.  There are a LOT of things you can’t do in public environments.  You also can’t get into stores without a mask, but once inside, some people pull their masks down and act as if they don’t have to respect anyone else around them.

WHY AREN’T PEOPLE WHO REUSE TO WEAR A MASK PROPERLY, MADE TO LEAVE THE STORES?  I don’t understand it.  They could literally kill someone.  Make them deathly ill, or destroy their lives with long hauler symptoms.  How is it, they are allowed to do whatever they please, when we can NEVER DO WHATEVER WE WANT TO DO IN PUBLIC PLACES?

We can’t bring guns into stores.  There are stickers on doors everywhere.  As if someone could even tell if a person was carrying.  Or dogs, or this or that, but a person can wear a mask on his or her chin on PURPOSE, during a raging pandemic, and no one tells the person to get out.  Sorry.  I think people who don’t care about the lives of others, should be kicked to the curb.

I SERIOUSLY doubt that anyone WANTS to wear a mask. I know I don’t. But people do it, not only for themselves, but for others as well.  It’s a sign of RESPECT and concern for others..

PROTECTION…a poem

text

we have to protect black lives
we have to protect women from violence
we have to protect children
we have to protect asian lives
we have to protect immigrants
we have to protect poor and hungry people
we have to protect the imprisoned
we have to protect ourselves from the police
we have to protect ourselves from our government
we have to protect animals
we have to protect the environment

WHO DON’T WE HAVE TO PROTECT
AND WHO ARE WE PROTECTING EVERYONE FROM

FROM PEOPLE WHO HATE
FROM PEOPLE WHO ARE CHRISTIAN CONSERVATIVES
FROM REPUBLICANS
FROM THE RICH
FROM THE POWERFUL
FROM THE GREEDY

FROM EACH OTHER

THIS IS REAL INSANITY

WHO AND WHAT DON’T WE HAVE TO PROTECT
OTHER THAN RICH WHITE MALES

Guy Lists 40 Ways In Which Amazon Exploits Its Employees And It’s Terrifying

The Conversation…

Cat, Pet, Animal, Tabby Cat

“I want to make some changes to the book.”

“How many changes?”

“What difference does it make?  Sylvia Beach did it for that Irish guy.”

“I’m not Sylvia Beach, and I seriously doubt that you’re Irish.”

“Maybe we should add a car chase.  People seem to like car chases.”

“The wind is fierce out here,” she said, shivering.

“Bad segue.”

“I bought lots of sardines for the party.”

“So, what you’re saying is that the book is a no-go.”

“Yes.”

“Did you get an ISBN number.”

“No.  It’s not a whole book.”

“It would be, if you’d take the pictures, and add a car chase.”

“Would cats be chasing the car?”

“Yes,” he said.

“That might not be a bad idea,” she admitted.  “A herd of cats on rooftops and…”

“Herd?  A herd of cats?  It’s a herd of cows, not cats.”

“Sorry.”

“Do I look like a bovine?” he asked.

“I don’t know.  Turn your head to the side.”

“That’s not funny.”

She heard Jinx snicker under the bushes.

“Why don’t you have a boyfriend?”

Excuse me?”

“A boyfriend.  A male, you know, one of those guys who brings you flowers on Valentine’s Day, if he knows what’s good for him.”

“I don’t want one.”

“Why not?”

“I like being alone.”

“I like this turkey,” he said.  “You can bring it again.”

“I like it too,” said Jinx, still hiding.

“I’m glad you both like it.”

Jinx came out and sat by her foot.  “How man books have been written by a cat?”

“None that I know of,” she said, petting him.

“Wouldn’t that make his book special?  Isn’t that a hook, to get people interested?”

She closed her eyes.  “Fine.  I’ll see what I can do.”

“Oh, for him, you’ll see what you can do, but not for me,” snarked the cat.

“I’m going home,” she sighed, standing up.  She kissed him and petted him, then kissed and petted Jinx.  “See you guys later.”

When she was gone, the cat turned to Jinx and said,  “Nice one.”

Jinx smiled.  “Thanks.”

Then they both curled up and went to sleep.

In the kitchen…all kinds of things exist. He’s quite shy and just goes about his business collecting crystals and feeding the dragons.2 pictures

Three books on working cats…1 and 3 are my favorites.
