Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

I Am So Relieved!

Thank heaven for the Coronavirus / Wuhan Virus / Chinese Flu / Novel Coronavirus / COVID-19 / CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Virus / SARS-CoV-2 Virus/Flu/Pandemic!

I better peck fast before I am covered up with Hate Mail because I dared to peck out the above paragraph.

I am not really happy that all this misery has been thrust upon us. It’s just that a see a sliver of relief slithering towards me because of all this misery that has been thrust upon us.

It has to do with Smiling. I don’t always want to smile. If someone says something that is Dirty Look Back At Them From Me Worthy, I would love to send a Dirty Look in their direction but social pressure has always required me to Smile and say something socially acceptable like...

  • “Do you really think so?” (While thinking to myself, “What a jerk!”)
  • “That’s very interesting.” (While thinking to myself, “It’s not near as interesting as the fact that that’s flawed thinking.”)
  • “I never thought of that.” (While thinking to myself, “That’s because I have the ability to not think stupid thoughts.”)

Like so many of us I have been hammered into being Politically Correct and I am also tired of sawing off limbs on which I sit, I will probably not start saying any of my above While Thinking to Myself Thoughts but I do see that the wearing of these Pandemic Prevention Masks is offering me some small amount of I Don’t Want To Smile Tension Relief...

I don’t have to smile at stupidity any longer because my mask is hiding that fact that I am not smiling!

I just may carry this True Feelings Security even further. My Mother taught me not to stick out my tongue at people who deserved to have a tongue stuck out at them. I am now free to stick out my tongue with reckless abandon!

I am so excited!

Would I kid u?
