Sentence of the Day: The Economist, 20 June 2020

When stimulus checks arrived in mid-April, Americans let rip on a broad range of goods. — Leader, p. 7

LOL  LOL  LOL

America is not dead — as long as Americans can shop, there is hope.

During the first week of lockdown, self was very anxious. She worried about stuff like — writing instruments.

Self still writes in longhand, and she needs a special kind of pen. After days of fruitless searching in groceries and supermarkets, frustrated at not being able to find the exact pen she was in the habit of using, she finally found them on Amazon. Sold in packs of 10. They took a bit longer than she expected to arrive, but they did arrive. So that got rid of one of her primal anxieties.

And she makes herself use Door Dash to support local mom-and-pop restaurants (one of self’s favorites, a small Thai restaurant on Woodside Road, closed two weeks after the lockdown, and she was so bereft).

Stay safe, dear blog readers. Stay safe.
