How long will COVID last? Who knows? The duration of the Coronavirus panicdemic will be determined more by how long and how much it benefits certain politicians, media outlets, and profiteers than by any actual measure of epidemiology. It’s just too good of a crisis to allow it to fade into the background like all previous pandemics have done.
But, of course, if one tips their head to the side and squints a bit, there are some mitigating factors to the unknown but extended duration of the panicdemic. “Long COVID” does also mean a longer term for our enjoying some good things. 😉
Let’s start there. All those mask wearing babes who are working extra hard to look appealing with half or more of their faces obscured – what man, and more women than you might guess, could find some amelioration to their depression and/or frustration in that?
And yes; I truly believe that we should give these women credit and our attention for their ingenuity and perservence in being beautifully displayed in spite of – or even because of – having to wear our new niqabs.
Remember, the longer certain sorts keep the COVID-19 pandemic going as a source of FUD and an excuse for tighter controls over the citizenry and the economy, the longer it will be until we have to recover and repurpose our investmentwear back to its official but less pleasing usage.
I, for one, have always thought that my dressier clothes, especially my white button-down shirts, were better used by my women, than myself. Hence, I’m perfectly content with keeping to my new businesswear and letting my women put my investmentwear to better, more enticing use. 😉
Now, please don’t misunderstand me. Both the Coronavirus and the actions enforced to “protect” us from its spread have been extremely deleterious to America, especially our economy as it impacts our rank and file. And, even though the damage has been far greater in those areas where the panic-mongers rule, we’re all suffering from it. There’s no getting around that or knowing how long it will be made to last.
I just prefer to promulgate the upsides to our situation. 😉 After all, there’s never a good reason to throw the baby – or the babes – out with the bathwater. And, it’s good for our health.
