Making it work.
Ok, today the boys went to be with their dad. A sad kind-of quiet descended on the house. Vegas the dog wandered around looking for her missing boys, then settled down, a little depressed. The-Prettiest-Girl-in-the-World held it together until they left, then cried.
But lots happened today.
The royal conservatory of music is making an effort to ensure their students can test. They’ll be in touch, but I told The-Prettiest-Girl-in-the-World we should email them and tell them just how loudly The-Oldest can play. Likely they can be in the Langley School of Music and still hear him. With earplugs in. And a hurricane outside.
The King of Thailand self-quarantined in Germany with 20 women. Now, this is either a guy’s greatest fantasy or his greatest nightmare. I guess it depends if one of those women is his mother or mother-in-law.
April 1st joke, liquor stores closed. When I read this, I thought, what the hell? Keeping a liquor store open is more essential than keeping our prime minister. When I learned it was a hoax, I let out a sigh of relief. It’s one thing to take a man’s toilet paper but take his beer? There’d be riots in the street.
Turkmenistan banned the word Coronavirus and are arresting people who wear masks. Apparently, they have zero cases of Coronavirus. At first, I thought this was a prank, but no, it’s crazies being crazy. You can check it out here.
BC Health Minister says “Zero chance,” physical distancing orders will be lifted in April: Also zero chance that I’ll stop eating donuts as a means of coping with all this sh*t.
Murals honouring health-care workers painted on boarded-up Gastown print shop. I think anyone who can paint should do something like this, but since I struggle to do a handprint with poster paint, you may not see me doing any painting.
For The-Prettiest-Girl-in-the-World and I, these next days will be very different for us. She’s working on a list of her own, and has plans for even more learnding. Me, I’m going to work on a photobook for my uncle and see if I can figure out some of the problems with my website.
But so much of our life in the last 3 weeks has revolved around the boys, we must reconsider what we do to avoid slipping into too much sadness and despair.
Until tomorrow, be safe, be healthy and respect this new world.
