Before anything else, let me say that I understand many of us cannot stay the fuck at home. Many of us have to go to work so we can continue to take care of those of us who are staying home. Many of us have families to feed and no choice but to work to continue living. I salute you. I am afraid for you. I love you. And I will protect you by continuing to stay the fuck at home.
Okay, so I certainly didn’t think “pandemic” as worst case scenario.
Which disappoints me, because I am usually so good at worst case scenario thinking.
I hope you all are safe.
I hope you are fed. I hope if you are able, that you are staying the fuck home.
T-this is when you should stay home
A-as previously stated, stay home
Y-you should just stay home
H-home is where you should stay
O-OMG, just stay home
M-maybe just stay home, then
E-everyone stay home
Remember that book that Samuel L Jackson read called Go The Fuck To Sleep?
We need a new version of that book called Stay The Fuck At Home. Read, of course, by Samuel L Jackson.
We really do kind of need that. Anyone have Sam’s number that can move this along a bit?
A few short weeks ago, I was in the hospital with my mom after she had a stroke. I didn’t think I could be more scared or more worried.
Wow, again, I was so wrong.
My sister, who lives with my parents, is a healthcare worker. She will be exposed. She will likely become infected. I am so sad and so scared.
We are isolating, so I can only talk to my mom on the phone. I can’t see her. I can’t hug her. I am terrified that I will never get to again. I wish so bad I could clearly remember the last hug I got from my mom, but I can’t. Not really. I should have paid attention.
This is why I am writing this post. I am begging you to stay at home.
I don’t give a fuck what the stupid president says. If there is any way you can isolate, please do. Please do.
The healthcare workers won’t be able to pull this off if we don’t help them. We can help them by staying put.
Maybe people isolating will save my mom. Or your mom. Or our whoever.
We’re all at risk.
If you are cooped up? Make some art.
Just make art. Sing. Laugh. Cry.
But stay the fuck home.
