Yes I too have a few nominations for that Darwin Award.
I have a Fitbit, it used to be easy to get 10,000 to 15,000 steps in a day, now I'm lucky if i get to 10,000. We have some very close friends that we used to get together with about 2X weekly, Taco Tuesday and Saturday night. Now we are lucky if we get together ONCE every other week for a pot luck dinner. It's a different world right now.
A few months back when we were still in lock down mode. I had to see my PCP, he at one point asked " have you done anything exciting recently?" I put my head down in shame, yes we got together with friends this past weekend for a potluck dinner, after not seeing them for over a month. I quickly added, but we ate outside, kept our distance as best we could and there was only 9 people involved. He shot back, GOOD, glad to hear!! You are being level headed about your get together. I support your activity. Pick a few friends, follow what the CDC recommends, but see people, just be smart about it. I felt better about that get together and we decided to continue until the daughter got the virus. It will pick up again soon.
This year is a bust. I have another good friend, we have been doing Black Friday Shopping for over 16 yrs now. Get up at 2:30am and shop till you drop, then go out and eat breakfast. We have had some of the best times at 3, 4, 5, 6, am in the morning, on only 3-4 hrs of sleep. Our kids were of the same age, and thus they got a lot of the same things, especially our daughters. One year, I focused on one item, she focus on another, the following yrs we switched. We will see how it plays out this year, but suspect this year may not happened. We hope to be back in action for 2021 Black Friday Shopping.
I've heard with all the precautions we are taking, we might wipe out the seasonal flu. I would be nice.
