Tuesday, April 14, 2020 – Live in the Time of Coronavirus

Today the brain is all over the place. So hang on and sing.

Today we have a song that never became popular. For example, here is one that was never sung since today was a bit icy for the big boat. It sank on this day in 1912.

Bon voyage to you, new Titanic.

You’re the greatest ship on the sea.

Bon voyage to you, new Titanic.

Say Hello to the Statue of Liberty!

To wish you a safe crossing is unthinkable.

We know with what you’re costing you’re unsinkable.

So bon voyage to you, new Titanic.

You’re the greatest ship on the sea.

Well, watch out for the iceberg.

              I have self-isolated, quarantined, stayed indoors, social distanced for one month with only trips to the grocery store. Yesterday, I ordered a large package of surgical masks. I fear this crap is not going away for another six weeks or so.  This may indeed become a cultural change.

Today, I was going for the space look rather than the bumble bee look when I went to the grocery store.

space mask

Mask wearing at the store was about fifty-fifty. Half the people wore one, the others not. I did see that some place in town required you to wear a mask. I tried to go that store, but they insisted I have on more than the mask and made me go home.

Us grammar mammars so dislike it when a noun becomes a verb. For example – Please, wear a mask (noun) Mask up (verb). Now please diagram the sentences. Stop complaining, you are as bored as I am. Admit it.

Here is another song gaining popularity in these times.

Where have all the paper towels gone?

Long time passing.

Where have all the paper towels gone?

Long-time ago.

Where have all the paper towels gone

Cause I can’t find a roll nowhere,

No, I can’t find a roll.

Stay safe. Stay strong. Say your prayers. And Lord, please do not let this linger into college football season.
