Nearly one month from the lifting of the mask mandate in Oregon, and things are beginning to feel, dare I say “normal?”
But really, what is normal?
I assume for all intents and purposes it’s what we’re used to. The everyday ho-hum of life. And these days, it kinda feels like it! We go out to restaurants, we play lottery at bars. Yeah, we don’t have super exciting lives, but sometimes we hit it lucky and the nachos are paid for by our winnings.
Another thing that’s returning to normal for us is travel. We went from NO travel to two domestic and one international trip in the next year! I know that masks will be a sure thing on the plane, and it doesn’t hurt my feelings a bit. I’m gonna see Washington DC! The Smithsonian! Except for the Air and Space Museum, that fucker’s closed when we’re there. But that’s okay! I really, really want to see the Natural History Museum, all the things!
Regardless of travel status, I’m still ordering curbside groceries.
