Do you guys keep up with your own local news? I try to. I’m not the best at it. I’m better at it when the local news directly affects me. But, I still try. Andy Beshear has made keeping up with local politics very easy because he’s been talking to us Monday through Thursday about the coronavirus.
There are RUMORS that he might shut Kentucky down again. To that I say, of course he would do that only AFTER I get the coronavirus. We needed a mandate again weeks ago. Our cases have tripled in a very short amount of time and not enough businesses are going to voluntarily allow their employees to work from home. The governor gave out new “recommendations” for red zone counties in Kentucky a few weeks ago. And, yes, I know that the world doesn’t revolve around me. I’m working on it.
In other local happenings, I usually make it a point to attend Writer’s Block Festival here in Louisville every year. I wasn’t sure what they were doing this year, if anything at all. I don’t think anything this year? It’s usually spread out in a few places downtown, or held on one of the local college campuses, or in an art gallery, or something like that. Usually over a weekend. Last year, it was held November 16th which was a Saturday, so it’s on my mind. But, even if they were having it this year around this time, I have to quarantine because I officially got my COVID19 test results back today and they were positive. It wasn’t surprising. My roommate tested positive and we had pretty much the same symptoms, just a few days apart. Even if my results hadn’t been positive, I still have the aches and the fatigue, so I wouldn’t feel like going anyway.
So, I’m mad I got coronavirus, mad no one is trying to get a handle on this virus here, and mad that I will probably have to miss Writer’s Block Festival, if there even is one this year. I’m also still very single and have no boyfriend to drop off surprise feel-better-soup outside my door.
How is your all’s Monday going?
