It’s pretty obvious to anybody who has been paying attention to people who actually know what they’re talking about that things are about as normal as they’re going to get for the foreseeable future, and that COVID19 is here to stay.
This past spring, I ordered four washable cloth masks. I figured no more than I go out of the house, that would be sufficient, and it was. But, now that I’ve started going out three times a week to rehab, I’ve just ordered 3 more. This evening when I was putting up clothes from the last load of wash, I made a place in my lingerie drawer for masks. Welcome to the new normal.
Some of the machines at rehab have WiFi, meaning they provide access to music services, YouTube and cable TV. But in order to get sound, you have to have earbuds. The rehab lady said the center will loan you earbuds if you don’t have any. My reply? Every thing in my house that has audio has earbuds except the TV (which has cordless headphones) and the iPhone*. I have earbuds till the world looks level. It’s just a matter of hunting out a pair and a small plastic baggie to carry them in.
* iPhones have a completely different kind of connector jack that won't work with any other kind of earbuds except iPhone buds, and of course, the iPhone buds won't work in anything else except the iPhone, so in addition to carrying my iPhone earbuds, I'll also have to carry a "works on everything else" pair in my purse . . . I think I may have an empty Altoids box somewhere . . . Sigh.
