Coronavirus Chronicles – Day 40

Here’s to the end of another work week. I’m ready for the weekend. I’m super excited about my podcast episode tomorrow. I just have to figure out what to do with my hair.

Not only are the days running into each other, but the weeks are too. Life doesn’t even seem real anymore. If you have been keeping up with my chronicles, (thanks), you already know that part of my family’s quality time before we go to bed is watching The Twilight Zone. Am I still in reality? It is hard to tell.

I woke up to #DontDrinkBleach trending on Twitter.

This was because of foolishness spewed from the lips of this person we call the President. This individual suggested using disinfectants on the inside of our bodies as a possible solution to the coronavirus. The maker of Lysol issued a statement:

“As a global leader in health and hygiene products, we must be clear that under no circumstance should our disinfectant products be administered into the human body (through injection, ingestion or any other route)”

How is this reality? Regardless of which party you support, I do not think anyone would have expected these types of comments from an elected President. Furthermore, to clear up the matter, today, the President said it was just sarcasm. People are dying. This is not the time to be joking around or to be sarcastic. These situations make me feel like I’m in a neverending episode of The Twilight Zone.

Enough about that. I had to have difficult conversations with some people today. It was difficult for them, not for me. What I’m not about to do is let anyone disturb my peace right now especially when they did not do something they needed to do.

To keep my zen after keeping it real with some folks, my entire family (yes, Mr. Barnes too!) went on a walk around our neighborhood. We stopped at our friends’ house. They live walking distance away. Don’t get it twisted. There were no hugs. The adults and children stayed far apart.

As we were walking away after our visit, my husband said, “It was good to talk to someone else.” I did not take offense because I knew what he meant. As much as we love each other, sometimes, we just want to talk to other people.

I returned home energized, so energized that I knocked over almost a half of container of splashless bleach on the floor. If you don’t know this already, splashless bleach is not a disinfectant. It says this on the back label. Use regular bleach for that; I do have regular bleach too. Even splashless bleach has strong fumes when you knock half of it onto the floor.

I’m sure this slight headache I have right now is from bleach fumes. I’m going to roll off of here, pop a couple of aspirin, and hopefully stay awake through the next episode of The Twilight Zone. We are almost finished with season two!

Don’t forget that I’m going to live stream my next podcast episode. You can join in at 1 p.m. EST on YouTube or Facebook. If you write comments or questions during the recording, we will try to answer them.

Tune in tomorrow for the next installment of the Coronavirus Chronicles.

Stay safe, and wash your hands correctly. Tschüss!
