Remember when there were topics of conversation that didn’t include coronavirus and/or our idiot “president”?
Think of the diversions that normal summers could give us —
— Sports! We are already halfway through the non-existent baseball season. I could have been lamenting how disappointing the Philadelphia Phillies could have been doing! And how are we going to have a fall without football?
— Summer vacations! Most people are afraid to get on an airplane or stay in hotels or resorts. And I for one am not about to sleep in a tent.
— New movies! And once movie theaters open again, is somebody even producing movies now that can be released?
— Concerts and live theater! I’m dying to see some live entertainment... a symphony orchestra, musical theater, anything!
— Summer love affairs! Who wants to kiss through masks?
— Political conventions! (Ha! Just kidding!)
Or maybe it’s just a summer to bask in memories of summers past..... or have a shaky hope for summers future.
