I've always been a "glass is half-full" kind of guy. So, here are things I've enjoyed during this time of restrictions put in place by our government.

  • Traffic is significantly lighter. And since there's road construction in every direction right now, that's a good thing.
  • I didn't go to a restaurant on Mother's Day, but at the places I've eaten, they have only been about half full.
  • The golf courses where I've played only allow one rider per cart. Perfect. I hate looking for somebody else's ball anyway. Plus I get to pick the music. OK, I ALWAYS get to do that but now nobody's complaining.
  • People mostly stay out of your space when out shopping. And I use the self check out anyway, to just keep contact to a minimum. It turns out that I could've worked checking groceries because I'm super fast and I'm careful not to crush your loaf of bread with a can of beans.

Please be kind to restaurant employees. This is not their fault. Maybe try a food truck for a meal. These are local businesses too.
