Yes, a failure of imagination on my part. Maybe the protest was the boyfriend's dream come true, not hers.

Or maybe it wasn't a protest at all. Maybe he really had to go potty.

I got the first dose of the Pfizer covid vaccine today. Texas has opened vaccination to everybody older than 50.
We can finally perceive the light at the end of the tunnel.  :) It's going to be interesting to see how people behave when this is over. I foresee lots of hugs.

We've been fully vaccinated since late January. And until last week's set of CDC guidelines, our behavior changed little -- mainly due to very low but non-zero probability that we could pick up an asymptomatic case and unwittingly infect someone else.

Our son is due in the next few weeks. Once he's fully vaccinated, lots of pent-up hugs will come spilling out, I'm sure. And he'll start coming by to do his laundry again no doubt.

There's a theater aspect to all of this. If everyone who's vaccinated stops masking and social distancing, many of the unvaccinated will stop, too. Case rates in the latter group will then go up, giving the virus more chances to make new variants that might be more resistant to existing vaccines.

Very tricky stuff.

Yes, it does sound like very tricky stuff.  Oddly enough, I had a dream last night about having our Miamisburg top fest this summer.  There were lot of happy people there and I think I remember a few still wearing masks.
