Updates from the Bunker

Here in the bunker we have lost all sense of time and space – we simply refer to everyday as Blursday. We operate strictly according the laws of nature, if it’s nice we go outside, if it is not than we stay inside. We are simple folk who sometimes remember to wash their hair and sometimes have to be called out by those around us to do so. Our biggest excitement comes when new Amazon boxes are delivered.

Next week some of us will be relocating to a new bunker – because sometimes it’s exciting to clean different things than the things that you always clean. And also this bunker is getting hot and I have already sent a strongly worded email to our pool club that under no circumstances, even if they open, would be using their facilities this summer. They are not big fans of me.

I actually spend a lot of my time sending strongly worded emails these days. So much so that sometimes my husband will walk in to the living room looks at my face and say “who are you arguing with now?” He knows me so well.

Things that I love right now are: drive through convenience stores, drunk FaceTime get-togethers, the price of gasoline, audiobooks and Pinterest. Things I hate: TV, people who congregate in groups, the price of avocados, politics and cooking dinner.

  1. I struggle with the idea (an underlying message of your post) we won’t ever “go back to the way things were”. We won’t eat in restaurants as often, we won’t drink in bars as often, and most significantly, we’ll watch our pennies more carefully, which will strain the big engine of the economy out there. The media claims the only way back to “normal” is to spend-spend-spend, but I wonder how many people will get back to that mindset when they’re more concerned about their next paycheck, let alone money in the bank? My hope is we reach some sort of compromise (another underlying message of your post): more face-to-face time instead of virtual, more time outdoors instead of in, and careful, thoughtful spending, in the interest of supporting businesses who deserve to be successful.

    1. I think now is an excellent time to reset our values and concentrate on the things that ate important. We are a society, not an econony.
