Special Torture (or how to grin and bear it)

Sad face. Covid-19 style.

In the days leading up to the covid-19 social isolation, I felt a distinct thrill like you might on the eve of a snow day or the moment the lights go out and you have to find the candles, but as I face this first full day, I just have to say that I am tense beyond what is called for. I think as an adult I’ve always faced uncertain and exhilarating times like this with company that I wanted to keep – with my housemates or my partner, but now I find that I’m facing potential weeks of such isolation with people that is effectively my job to take care of. I don’t want to spend this time with my parents. I don’t hate the idea of spending this time with my daughter but I wish I had somebody. Else.
