“Don’t go to the rodeo if you don’t like it” If your kids weren’t in classes with mine... if you’d weren’t coming to my place of business... if you weren’t shopping at the few essential places we need to shop at... then fine. But I’m given zero choice about attending the rodeo.
Your rodeo attendance (or church/restaurant/anti-lockdown rally) means I’ve also attended because that’s how Covid works. But do go on about how I should just let people have fun.
My parents are watching my youngest grow up through screens. Yesterday a lovely elderly woman came to my cafe and my toddler excitedly told me that grandma was here. Not her grandma... someone else’s grandma who probably hasn’t seen her grandkids much either.
