In These Times of Covid

In these times of Covid-19, we are day drinking, evening drinking, night drinking, binge-watching, and binge eating.In These Times of Covid

We are supporting our favorite, now empty restaurants with takeout, curbside, and deliveries while we stress eat in between those deliveries.

We are stressed about running out of toilet paper even though this is not a gastrointestinal disorder. As we fret, we wonder what people used before the advent of TP, only to be disgusted by the custom of “eat with your right hand, wipe with your left.”

We are standing in line to get into Costco and Trader Joe’s.

Kudos to both for running such a tight ship, and leading the way here in Charleston. But we are defeated when they have no toilet paper, so we fill our cart with wine instead.In These Times of Covid

We avoid going to Walmart because we are afraid. Knowing that just looking at a bottle of hand sanitizer while thinking, “I have plenty.” Only to be tackled by four people who already have five bottles in their cart. In these times

We are told to wash your hands for 20 seconds frequently.

Great idea! Maybe we can continue to do that next flu season as well, so we can prevent 50,000 people from dying from the flu. Oh, that’s right, the flu is “different” because we have a vaccine. A vaccine that is guesswork at best that works great some years and barely at all the next. But roughly 50,000 people still die from it every year.

We are told, “Don’t touch your face.”  How the f…k is anyone able to “not touch their face” during allergy season?

Disinfect every surface in your home. How many times? Cause I just touched my face again?

Now three weeks into this thing and the store shelves are still empty. Honestly, who has all the Clorox wipes and Lysol cleaner?

In These Times of Covid…

We are working from home while homeschooling our children. All while on a Zoom conference call about regional budgets with the dog barking in the background when we realize… We do not have the foggiest idea of how to teach, let alone do, fourth-grade math.

We are wearing masks when social distancing while nurses and doctors on the front lines are maskless.

In these times of Covid, we finally realize how politicians get so rich while serving their constituents by making stock trades on secret information they learned in a briefing four months ago.

We tell citizens to “shelter in place” (isn’t that a phrase to protect yourself from an active shooting)? But if you want to vote, you have to leave your home because we can not extend absentee voting or delay the election.


We are tired because we can not sleep. Our brains are on overload.

We are frustrated because marriage was never intended to be this “in your face 24/7/365”.In These Times of Covid



And finally, frustration abounds because the country lacks leadership.

Ok, fine!  Now I am depressed too.

In these times of Covid…    Some of what we drank… often but not a lot. Ok, occasionally a lot.

Remember … “wine understands me and never asks questions.”

No tasting notes, just images of these excellent wines that you too should try. I will dig into some of these wines in future posts.  Any particular wine interest you? Let me know and I will be sure to include it in a future post.

  1. these are crazy times indeed. Our Costco has been nice enough to put signs up on what they do not have, so that if you are looking for something you know right away not to wait on line.
    Stay safe.

    • Ours does too NOW but that was not the case from the beginning.
