It is now Week 22 of the New Normal for Minnesota older adults. We have been socially isolating and doing essential errands only since March. Our old routines no longer exist and we are slowly finding new ways to connect and do activities with our family and friends.
Perhaps it’s a good time to take a lighter look at our lives……..
“Until further notice, the days of the week are now called, this day, that day, other day, someday, yesterday, today, and next day.”
“The dumbest thing I purchased was a 2020 planner.”
“If I had known in March it would be my last time in a restaurant, I would have ordered dessert.”
“Keep in mind, even during a pandemic, no matter how much chocolate you eat, your earrings will still fit.”
“I never thought the comment ‘I wouldn’t touch them with a 6 foot pole’ would become a national policy, but here we are!”
“The buttons on my pants are starting to socially distance from each other.”
At the grocery store there was a Big X by the register for me to stand on….I’ve seen too many Road Runner cartoons to fall for that one.”
“They said a mask and gloves were enough to go to the grocery store. They lied, everybody else had clothes on.”
Enjoy this day, whatever day it is!
