This morning, I called for a Lyft for the first time since the beginning of the pandemic. When I asked the driver if she’d like me to wear a mask, she chuckled and said, “definitely not.” During the ten minute ride, she explained to me how [ridiculous] wearing a mask was, and that we are [not in China]. The conversation was very colorful and had many exciting highlights—topics like [we are all dying]. It’s true, we are all dying, and it had to end sometime. We aren’t here very long, and this life is temporary. I don’t fear death or anything else, for that matter. Still, I believe it’s important not to put others at risk unnecessarily, so most of the time, I wear a mask and take all of the appropriate precautions. Sometimes I take the precautions out of a desire to give others peace of mind. All of this will be argued for some time.
My immune system is top shelf, but I take All Precautions.
