RDP Wednesday: Flexible

Te older you get, the more flexible you must be. Certain changes in the body mean you begin to search online for aids and assistance to facilitate your life style, web sites for the handicapped. I have already passed this stage, but now we have a new virus and it seems that no-one really knows what to do with it, Our governments are running around like headless chickens, but they are trying to help and find solutions. The latest news from our government is that the emphasis will be placed on golden oldies.

This is very considerate, especially as it seems they are more prone to complications. I would say that I am feeling OK at the moment, no dry cough or other symptoms and I am doing all I can to stay this way. It seems that one of the most important contributions to staying healthy is to wash your hands: not just a normal dangle under the tap, but a thorough cleaning process for at least 20-25 seconds. Of course soap is necessary, but why settle for just soap when you can use hand sanitiser.

About a year ago I bought a bottle on the advice of Mr. Swiss but personally I never used it.  He used it from time to time but in the meanwhile moved on to something to apply to the hands after washing, alcohol based. Today I went on a quest to the stores to buy another bottle of sanitiser and to replenish Mr. Swiss special alcoholic solution, after all the government were recommending it.

I arrived at the store, got my groceries and moved onto the drug store department. I was confronted with emptiness. There was not one bottle of anything to be seen: nothing, rien, nichts, de nada. I am now clinging onto my remaining half filled bottle of this priceless liquid. I am convinced that I am one of the only in our area, perhaps in our Kanton, even Switzerland, that possesses this precious liquid.

As I was leaving the supermarket I was greeted at the parking space by a lady that actually works in the store at the cash desk. We had a conversation and she said that for a long while there have been no more deliveries of this liquid. She is especially annoyed, as she said that handling money all day at the till is really unpleasant. I would say before our brilliant government wants to help and support the golden oldies, they should make sure that they can realise their promises.
