Sheltering-in-Place, Day 2

Day 2 of (?): Shelter-in-Place 2020
I had to go outside today. My car battery was dying. A prescription was ready. It was unavoidable. So, I made the best of it.
If they can see me, they can avoid me, right?


The goal when I'm out, is to avoid and be avoided in the most pleasant way possible. So, I present you with pink shoes encasing my favorite bee knee socks, a double layer yellow knit dress with a fun striped shirt/dress/jacket/cape, and, ya know, a sun hat because my paleness is real.

Going outdoors has been a struggle for a while, but I'm not here to talk about that today. The relief of people supposedly agreeing to stay 6 feet away is amazing. The reality of the social distancing in practice is not quite as awe-inspiring. We're doing what we're willing, and that is, at least, something. 

I chatted with the lady at the mechanic's desk. She's always nice to me. When I pulled out my own pen to sign the battery-replacement documents, she shared with me about how most people are being really great with her and the mechanics about keeping their distance and being respectful about their personal health precautions. 

At the pharmacy, I was helped by the pharmacist with the most amazing hair. They have an involved system to help keep their employees safe at the pharmacy counter and blue taped lines on the floor to help keep us customers 6 feet apart while we wait in line. I appreciated it. I liked it. I'm hoping that all this will be over by the next time I get to visit with my pharmacy peeps. If not, I have more knee socks.
