This afternoon I went shopping for the week-end. A normal event on Friday, but I now have to ask myself what is normal. People were moving around in the store, but there was plenty of room. I had my list of items to get for the week-end meals. This time I was buying a little more. The world (and not just a few annoying nations with their political problems) is in a turmoil. Nothing is how it was.
I saw empty shelves in the supermarket, nothing drastic. If you wanted to get a few canned items forget it. They had all been sold out. Canned food is not something that I often have on my list. I like to make fresh vegetable. There are a few exceptions where I would buy frozen, but my freezer, although large enough for my family, is not king sized.
We are not under the threat of a 3rd World war with atom bombs. The enemy is smaller than a pint point with hairs. it flies through the air and settles where it finds a reason to thrive and goes under the name of Covid 19.. I was just listening to our government with the newest tactics. Schools stay closed until the end of April and restaurants are not allowed more than 50 persons at once including staff. Listening to the Swiss government was quite interesting, as we got it in French, Italian and German from the various ministers. So we all live on in isolation and hope that one day we can shake hands again.
