    If it makes you feel better, other people are afraid you will start showing up at social gatherings when the pandemic is over.

    So many people that say they’re tired of the “new normal” are going to be flummoxed when they remember they didn’t like to old normal either.

    I’ll avoid the gatherings with or without COVID.

    Look on the bright side, Rat—you’d have great success as a used-car salesman!

    It’s strange…like rat, I don’t like ‘social gatherings’, but now that we can’t have any I miss them. Humans are a weird species.

    Wait a minute, there were social gatherings before the pandemic? Nobody told me.

    Just hide under the covers, call it your “bunker”, and tell everyone you’re waiting for the “second coming of the Orange Messiah”

    There are some social gatherings where I don’t mind the excuse not to gather, but on the whole, I prefer having a choice.

    the social gatherings to avoid are any “special” events aka a poor white trash mobs despoiling America at Trump’s direction.

    He’s in a freaking bar, not wearing a mask and not socially distanced. Where does he live?

    I’m fine with never shaking anyone’s hand again. I’m a no touchy kind of guy.

    Went to Walgreens on Tuesday for the Senior discount and when I reminded the checkout clerk that I was a senior, I got a quizzical look. My wife says it’s the mask and because my hair is still full and the same color as always … who knew there’s another benefit to these blasted things …
