There was a time when someone asked you “Are you ok?” and you replied that “You’ve got a bit of a cold” the other person didn’t take a step back and look at you with great suspicion. Well I’ve got a cold, no not the Coronavirus but a cold and you see I’m even at it treat my own symptoms with suspicion. Yes I have visited the coronavirus website and No I have none of the symptoms yet the suspicion lingers.
Welcome to the new Normal. It doesn’t matter what the government might say none of us are going to be the same again. How long this change will last is like most of the things about this pandemic – nobody knows. We can all have a stab at making a suggestion now but with such a fluid situation any sound and rational pronouncement will very quickly prove to be wide of the mark. Perhaps that is what the New Normal is – profound and rapid change that will leave the so called talking heads talking to themselves as the world rattles by.
The one thing I know for certain is that I have a cold.
