Late to the Covid Party

It tickles my sense of irony, if not the rest of me, that I did not get Covid until the years-long Covid emergency had ended. Indeed, it was not until I let down my guard and began going into places — Costco, my credit union, my local Kaiser office — without a mask. It was not a conscious decision on my part, wearing a mask had simply fallen out of my routine, except for one time when I noticed that I had not taken a mask and decided not to go back to retrieve one.

So now, I suppose that I am a data point for not wearing masks. Some good comes out of this, I suppose.

From more innocent times…

I also become a data point in favor of boosters. My last booster was in late October, timed to reach its full effect before Thanksgiving, get us past Christmas and New Years, and through the month of January and (with luck) February, when our family celebrated a wedding. The reminder that I was eligible for another booster, now that six months had (just about) past), arrived the day that I tested positive. Oh well…

As a result, my life is limited to our m*ster be dry suite and the back door though which I can get to my car, though I don’t feel like it’s right mor me to shopping (other than something transacted outdoors, like getting gasoline. Notably, this keeps me away from mummy computer, which is within the open floor plan section of the house. As a result, it’s very difficult for me to write and post stories, using only my iPhone, as well as the other things I do on my computer. If my not posting much has been notice Le, that’s why. I can still, as you can tell, comment after a fashion, but editing on my phone is difficult.

Anyway, I should be back in the swing of things before May. (Or June.) Keep OC safe and honest while I’m out!

The graphic, by the way, is from the early days of Covid, when I thought I could chart the progress of Covid in OC until it passed. (Turns out that I couldn’t.)

About Greg Diamond

Somewhat verbose attorney, semi-retired due to disability, residing in northwest Brea. Occasionally runs for office against bad people who would otherwise go unopposed. Got 45% of the vote against Bob Huff for State Senate in 2012; Josh Newman then won the seat in 2016. In 2014 became the first attorney to challenge OCDA Tony Rackauckas since 2002; Todd Spitzer then won that seat in 2018. Every time he's run against some rotten incumbent, the *next* person to challenge them wins! He's OK with that. Corrupt party hacks hate him. He's OK with that too. He does advise some local campaigns informally and (so far) without compensation. (If that last bit changes, he will declare the interest.)
