I can't go to the pub, I can't go for a meal, I can't go to the shops - and I can't visit friends.

I just spoke to my elder sister, who is a widow and over 70 and lives on her own, 6 hours drive away from me. My niece is a divorced special-needs teacher living in the same town, but working elsewhere. She has a 7-year old daughter. Her school is running a rota for those to cover "essential workers" kids, so she is still required to work part-time, but her daughters school is closed, so she's being sent to a different school and being picked up by my sister (over 70), when her mother is working. I can't even go there to help - and this might continue for months.

Jeez, you'd never believe a film with this script....
I'm in the same country as my family, but still 5000 kms from home. I'll see her again when she's gone grey due to no hairdresser visits. She hated me for laughing at her predicament, but I still did. Cand wait til all the women folk start looking their age 不不

I had a couple of days off that I'd booked before the schools closed since this week was going to be spring break. Seemed a shame to not use them anyway.

We're essential services so I'm back at work now. This has strangely been made more enjoyable after having had to be reminded of this reference, so thanks I guess

Also, this. All this while we are talking about having parties at "the wall" etc and rambling on about Mexican immigrants sucking up social services or whatever it is in the US, we are happy to pay them peanuts to damage their own health by buying their plasma twice a week so that corporations can make a profit.

But I am in messenger a lot, and on my phone, so it likely shows I'm online all the time.
