Field trips

On Saturday, fully vaccinated, we got on the interstate to visit a friend (also fully vaccinated) whom we hadn’t seen in person since January 2020. It was our first time on an interstate since a run to the beverage depot in November. A few miles in, at 70 mph, we both felt slightly carsick.

On Sunday, still fully vaccinated, we attended a small outdoor hundredth-birthday party with other fully vaccinated people. That was in town, top speed 35 mph.

Contra a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad skit from this past week’s SNL: talking with people in person felt wholly familiar and wholly wonderful. I think we talked about everything but our pandemic.
