The Shelter Saga Begins

Way back a million years ago, the COVID-19 cases got bad enough for officialdom to notice and start making recommendations. “Stay home and wash your hands” were the orders of the day.

Pretend that the pages in this series are taken from the daily journal of one poor schlub who’s been cooped up for so long he’s lost track of the days. * Maybe a few of the entries will strike a chord of recognition…

~~ Rich Olcott

* You may ask, “Why 37 or 137?” Well, it started with 37. Number 19 is part of the name of the viral disease and 19’s a prime number and so is 37 which is one less than twice 19. Also there’s this. The day number stayed at 37 for quite a while and that garnered some complaints so I switched to 137 which is also a prime number.

If those aren’t a good‑enough answer, then how about I didn’t think when I started this series that we’d be locked down for so many days. Silly me.
