NOT TO MAKE FUN OF A DIRE SITUATION BUT …LET’S FACE IT….WE ARE RIDICULOUS….
Someone had the audacity to send me an email today on what to do if you were bored in the Covid-19 Lockdown that has gripped Vancouverites like a very ugly pangolin chomping on a bat wing. Bored?
Now, you will have to look that word pangolin up, because why the hell would you know about this animal from Africa and Asia that is now associated with bat meat being the possible transmitter of the virus from China in January in the first place?
Well, I am about to tell you.
Yes, it’s come to this. Weird Food. Really Weird food.
Ok. Not bored enough to find out about this African and Asian mammal that has a body covered with horny overlapping scales, a small head with an elongated snout, a long sticky tongue for catching ants and termites, and a tapering tail? It’s also called scaley-anteater?
And you want me to eat this? Or, even know about people who do?
A delicacy that might have been brought to the textile capital of the world - Milano - which has a direct flight from there to Wuhan? Along the very same route as the original (one and only) Silk Road? The same Silk Road that was the passageway for the Bubonic Plague through Europe in l665 where people in London were also in the grip of a very ugly…
Could you repeat that, please?
But to be fair for all of us who are trying to keep up - this is still a theory from the global scientific community To find out more, check out The Guardian in the UK yourself. - And stay away from American news on all fronts.
Those poor people are being led by Kentucky Fried Nero and there’s no hope now with 200,000 possible infections which he refuses to acknowledge. Nancy Pelosi said it best, “while he fiddles…”
Back to the not possible at all suggestion about being bored. Not possible.
You know, however, when you are calling a friend and they start talking in baby talk to their dog - while they are talking to you - that they might have stepped past the line of boredom into the land of Get-Me-Out-Of-Here.
We all feel it.
We’re all in this together.
Just occupy your mind so…you don’t get bored.
