It’s been a month since I last wrote on my blog. I’ve been trying to feel my feelings and take a day-at-a-time. Most days I can do that. Yesterday was not one of those days. I felt very overwhelmed with how quickly the COVID-19 virus has spread around the world. The nervous side of me and the logical side started a debate in my head.
I decided to write down the conversation happening between my ears. It was pretty funny when I reread it later. Hopefully, it will make you laugh as well.
Nervous: The world is falling apart. It’s time to get yourself a really big truck and run over to Costco as fast as you can.
Logical: You don’t have a Costco membership.
Nervous: You’ll get one. And then you’ll buy all the stuff you need for the next 15 years.
Logical: Um. That’s a lot of stuff. Do you really need a 15 year supply of toilet paper?
Nervous: Yes. Yes, you do. Go right now before they stop all production of everything for the rest of eternity. Buy some chocolate chips while you’re there too. You might get a boyfriend one of these days. You’ll want to make him some cookies.
Logical: Cookies would be tasty. You should make some. I’m sure this dream boyfriend will be kind and intelligent.
Nervous: (cuts off Logical Amee) Yes, he’s all of that and a great kisser. You won’t be getting any kisses though if you’re dead. So, you better go to Costco right now before the world ends.
At this point, I just started laughing.
It was kind of funny that both my logical and nervous sides think chocolate chip cookies are a good idea. I may be stuck at home practicing the social distancing thing, but at least I can still entertain myself.
How are you holding up?
(By the way, I looked in my pantry. I do have some chocolate chips so if the boyfriend decides to shows up on my doorstep. . . . . . I’m ready.)
