You got some of those virusesses?


Recommended Posts

So my daughter had back to school orientation today. This little turd sitting in front of her had his mask off the entire time the teacher was talking. Then as we were leaving he had it down below his nose and she just walked right up to him and pulled it over his nose and said there you go.

She is my new hero.

I am a mask nazi at school. I will send a kid to OCS (On campus suspension) if they don't wear it all day properly. And we talk all the time about the action of washing your hands and I often say "Now let us practice washing our hands!"

I wasn't feeling well on Monday, so I got a test so my kids can go to school. It was negative.

Today my son got sent home with a sore throat. They said he only needs to get tested if he still has it tomorrow, otherwise if he's symptom free he can go.

We have so many parents at my daughter's school who are screaming to not have to wear masks any more and basically have the school operate like its 2019. Do these people live in some sort of altered reality?

Honestly, I might not be able to keep my daughter there if they listen to people like this.

I think the people like that are the most afraid. They're afraid of anything being slightly outside the norm. Afraid of having to make hard choices and deal with things not being as expected. We're all struggling with life no longer being what we considered normal, but these are people who are SO wrapped up in what they viewed as normal that they can't deal with anything even slightly outside of that, let alone a global pandemic. Life must be ordered the way they want it, or it's wrong and evil.

And they have the temerity to call mask wearers cowards.

In good news, the school laid out their COVID protocols in a very clear and concise manner today and it's basically "have symptoms, stay home until they are gone, even with a negative test".

I've always chalked it up to utter selfishness at being inconvenienced, but you might be on to something there.

My brother is a teacher and caught covid from one of his kids.  THe parents knew the kid was infected and sent him to school anyway for several days.  Good parenting.

That right there is my biggest fear. I come home and my laundry room is right off my patio. Before I even go in I have a bathrobe on a hook and strip down in my laundry room and wash my clothes in hot water before I enter the house and shower like I'm a nurse working a covid unit. My hands are red from washing them eleventy billion times a day. But so far we're doing good. I've been tested three times this week and my sore throat is more from sinus drainage.

Hey, Alaska is winning?

We’re number one for Covid according to NYT, probably per capita. Worst Delta outbreak in the country apparently, probably per capita again. 1,300 new cases reported yesterday, about that each day for a bit now. Our overwhelmed hospitals have initiated legal defenses for prioritized care, meaning if they consider you less likely to survive they stop caring for you. Meanwhile our Governor said there is no need to impose lockdowns or mask mandates because individuals can make choices with a vaccine available.

Feel free to copy and paste the above like a form letter, just remember to change the location for when your state wins.

With the end of tourist season Alaskan’s could hope for a reprieve, but we can’t forget that it is now football season. That’s business season for our bars, dontcha’know. The Peanut Farm, one of Anchorage’s most popular bars, also the name is real, always has a full parking lot. One of my wife’s co-worker’s husbands, that’s a mouthful, isn’t vaxxed and went to The Peanut Farm to watch football with all his friends. He has covid now, and he is likely why their daycare aged daughter also now has covid.

Edit: So… My wife is unsure if her co-worker’s husband was at the Peanut Farm or a different bar. There are two sports bars by our neighborhood, the aforementioned Peanut Farm and Eddie’s Sports Bar. Both have had covid closures since this all began however.

Edit, Episode II: 1,700 new cases today. Yay.

So, my dad’s friend, like an uncle to me my whole life, comes over at least once a week for a beer.

This week he came over and announced he tested positive the day before.

The good: they stayed in the barn. My dad was the only one who had direct contact.

The bad: WHO THE FUCK GOES OUT FOR A BEER AT A FRIEND’S HOUSE THE DAY AFTER THEY GET A POSITIVE COVID TEST?

Oh, and my dad is an antivaxxer who refuses to get tested or wear a mask, so who knows if he’s positive now, too.

So now I have yet another test today before I can go back into work.

The largest school district in San Antonio, Northside ISD, has decided since the covid cases are subsiding they're going to drop the mask mandate in classrooms in their district starting next week.

Kids are about to be able to get vaccines but they haven't gotten them YET but it's like someone said it was coming so we should stop wearing masks now? Maybe we need to update what we teach in health class about being clean. 

Does it ever feel like rinse and repeat and human beings can't LEARN a lesson? And what's worse is like you're a school. You're supposed to learn in these things. Like did we suddenly subscribe to nonsensical science out of the blue? Last year we had the fewest flu cases on record in San Antonio. I like to think it's because your flu ridden child never came to school and spread it and we wear masks. I hate wearing the mask but I do it while I teach ALL day long. From 7:30 AM to just after 4 PM. I'm probably going to keep doing it because I hate that feeling of being sick. Even for the flu. LOL

So, my boss exposed me to Covid last week. I explicitly asked, do I need to isolate until I get a negative test. Nope, get your butt in the office or we don’t pay you. I’m going in and wearing a mask, I guess.
