The nitrous oxide makes it worth it, though.
They probably would, but only on the line of “remember the year of the bad pandemic and we had pizza rolls for thanksgiving?” “Yeah, that was fun. Let’s not do it again, thought, OK?”
Thanksgiving is not a mandate. There is no requirement to get together with a bunch of people during a pandemic. Everyone should know this, and do what they can to avoid overcrowding hospitals to the point that most of the staff is ill and no one with a “normal” emergency can be helped. Cut your hand badly on thanksgiving? Do you want to go to the ER? Overeat, fall asleep, wake up with chest pains? Do you want to go to the ER? Fall on ice on your way into grandparent’s house? Ditto. Need surgery, maybe a new hip, but it can wait? Live with the pain, or take a risk? We shouldn’t be here like this. Our freedoms seem to be in direct contradiction to the right to stay alive. Wait until the hospitals haven’t calmed down after Thanksgiving and then Christmas comes. Then New Years. Nothing like a bunch of drunk people forgetting to even consider keeping a distance from each other. The USA has the highest covid rates in the world and the best opportunities to control it. It’s not a little flu. Try going into a hospital and visiting someone to verify that it’s a real pandemic. Or while you are being removed, notice that all employees and medical personnel are wearing protective equipment. Especially masks. Probably two. Plus a face shield or goggles.
MI had extremely low cases during the summer while under her restrictions. She saved a lot of lives. MI is in phase 2, not 3, having skipped phase 2 earlier thanks to her. Then she was stripped of her ability to protect people.
This started with an essential worker going to visit mom carefully and taking a “care package” home. At any time, that is a fine thing to do. I just want to know if there are any TP packages in that truck, and if he will be in my area any time soon…My family is not having a Thanksgiving together this year. We are all happy and giving thanks that none of us has been sick. We are also grateful that protections from covid has also helped us all avoid the flu (plus flu vaccinations) or even colds, so far. The covid vaccination will be hardest on me. I tend to react strongly to most vaccinations, but not flu so far. Shingles was rough, and my first pneumonia vaccine years ago nearly killed me, and it took me 17 years to try another. I just had a large red rash, light fever, and headache this time. Worth it. Here’s hoping medical and other essential workers are able to be vaccinated soon.
My beagle slides on hard flooring – but she will do anything for food.
And 20 years before that, it would be assumed he would be a smoker and ashtrays would be all over to try to avoid burns. Maybe now they have masks conveniently available and sanitizer dispensers all over.
Doesn’t even know where he is. I am surprised he hasn’t been killed in traffic by now.
And Luann is still age 12 or so in development. Maybe they can help each other grow up. I have been reading this comic from the beginning. You know, when Luann had a pointed head.
