Social distancing is not a problem for a misanthropic old geezer like me.

Me too!
I am just an anti-social old git anyway, so I think even longer distancing should continue after the 'thing' has gone.

LOL...thanks, we all need to just step back and laugh as much as possible

I still remember the words from some Lt Col as I entered basic training in the army back in '68:
"Men you're about to embark upon an 8 week journey, you'll get through this if you have a healthy attitude and a good sense of humor."
