It was less than a month ago that the Sports Diva returned from her latest 30 Plus Teams Tours of San Francisco and Las Vegas.
I couldn’t wait to get home and think about the next two trips that I would be making in early May and late June.
God willing, I will still make those trips, I just don’t know when thanks to Coronavirus , Covid 19, aka the virus from hell.
The virus has affected everything and everyone from your next door neighbor to heads of countries to those basketball and hockey players you cheer for.
Life isn’t the way we know it.
Now we’re told to stand six feet away from each other.
Self quarentine is going to be the word of the day if not the year.
Speaking of the year, can we get a do over on 2020, because it’s been sucking big time and we’re only in month number three.
People have been told to wash their hands, like are y’all for real right now?
Someone actually has to tell you to do this?
Supermarkets here in the United States have set aside “senior hours”, usually from 7am to 9am because those of us over 60 are the ones to be affected the most by this virus.
Never would I thought I see supermarkets run out of toilet paper because people are hoarding it like it’s gold.
(Okay, so not only don’t some of you not wash your hands, it seems like some of you don’t seem to wipe your behinds either.)
Everything that we take for granted has basically gone because of the virus that many people, especially, young people who pack the beaches of Florida and Texas thinking they’re invicible, and taking the virus as a joke.
The joke’s on us and it’s not funny.
‘It’s just like the flu’,some people said
Let’s stop the madness here my peeps and get with the program.
I’ve had the flu and I remember spending my first Christmas in Los Angeles at the hospital.
This isn’t the flu,fam.
Didn’t y’all get that memo on how serious and deadly this is?
The flu doesn’t close non essential businesses, religious services, schools and colleges or suspend sporting events.
The flu doesn’t make elected officials order a lockdown of your city for a month or longer.
A simple flu doesn’t shut down airports, nor does it make you rethink your travel no matter if you’re going by bus, plane or train.
Sadly, the flu doesn’t stop funerals or weddings from happening because more than 10 people are attending.
This is the new reality that we happen to be living in because of the virus from hell.
How am I coping with it?
To be honest, the Sports Diva isn’t, but by the grace of God, I’m doing the best I can because I have to.
I have people who rely on me.
I hate the fact that I can’t travel nor watch a sporting event, but that’s okay.
YouTube is my best friend and even though I can’t travel far, a walk around the block with my mask and plastic gloves on works just fine.
I don’t care where this virus started or how it started, I just wish it would go away.
Now that I would be able to cope with.
