Toilet Paper and Hot Dogs Happy Pandemic Everyone. I hope wherever you are that you are healthy in body, mind, and spirit. I wish you joy and happiness, but above all this, I wish you looooooooove.
I am well, thank you. I am self-quarantining and socially isolating. I used to call it an extreme writing day. Now every day is extreme writing day.
This morning, as I was replacing the toilet paper roll, I was mindful that I was replacing the toilet paper roll even though there is plenty of toilet paper in the house. Then I wondered if this will be the new normal. By the way, I have heard of at least two pizza places that have included a roll of toilet paper with every order. What does that say about the pizza?
I must apologize if this post seems a little more stand-up comic than the usual Sunshine Jen fare. I've been binge watching Mrs. Maisel.
It's been raining in LA and Southern California. The pictures of Disneyland closing looked very dark and ominous with people in plastic rain ponchos and thick grey clouds. It was just some rain. We haven't jump started the apocalypse out here. We just had rain and a pandemic happen at the same time.
There is one group that is winning in these crazy times: dogs. I live with a dog, and he is getting walked more than usual. I communicated with several dog owning friends, and they are experiencing the same thing. Their dogs are much happier. The dog humans are home more and take them walking more. No more being left alone. No more quickie walks before going out at night. The dog walks are lonnnng and special because the humans need it as much as the dog.
By the way, July is National Hot Dog Month. However, there is great uncertainty in my world about National Hot Dog Day. According to the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council, National Hot Dog Day is July 17th. However! The North American Meat Institute will be hosting their annual Hot Dog Lunch on Capital Hill on July 22nd. There are two National Hot Dog Days this year. Maybe that's not such a bad thing. Something to look forward to.
