Social Distancing



I recalled every NFL champion dating back to my birth year in 1972. It took me seven minutes. I timed it.


I worked on my mid-range jump shot in the driveway. And purposely showed off in front of the Amazon Prime driver as he passed the house.


I grated cheese for tacos rather than using the waxy, already-shredded bag.


I watched all seven episodes of The Tiger King on Netflix and never once considered it a waste of time.


I picked weeds by hand, happily snotted on my sleeve and accepted the impending poison ivy with open arms.


I dove into multiple political Facebook threads and reveled in people's ability to have an open mind and to grasp nuance. J/K.


I smiled a lot.


I refused to speculate.


I paced the house in frustration.


I speculated.


I finished the leftover re-fried beans and chased it with an orange.


I taught myself how to do a bear crawl with a dumbbell after twenty minutes of practice.


I dreamed up the most bizarre character for my in-progress book, wrote a 1,809 word chapter about him and will most likely delete it in the near future.


I felt sad that my son may not experience a "normal" high school graduation. I got over it.


What have you done?
