Since the Great Chicom pandemic hit, months ago, I’ve continued to visit the supermarket two or three times a week. I went this morning, and had an interesting conversation with my cashier.
“You know I come here all the time,” I said, “at pretty much the same time every day. And in all this time, I’ve always seen all of you at your posts. If you don’t mind my asking, has anybody here had COVID-19?”
“Not one of us,” she said. “We’ve been here every day, for months, and no one’s gotten sick.”
“And I’ll tell you something else,” she added. “If Trump loses the election, the day after Election Day–poof! No more virus.”
I thought that had a ring of truth to it. “Unless,” I said, “they want to keep it going as a way of controlling people.”
“They might,” she agreed.
Sure doesn’t sound like any devastating plague to me. Honk if you think the cashier got it right.
