It’s Tuesday, can you imagine? Welcome back to our daily open thread.

New York City, where I live, started “phase one” of reopening yesterday, which is a couple industries. The bar under my house told me it’s possible they could open for outdoor service in a few weeks. It feels weird that I spent so long wishing things would have some sense of normalcy, and now “oh, I could go to the bar again” feels like the furthest thing from my mind. I would, however, really like to go to the laundromat, and also see some doctors. My dentist’s office reopened, which filled me with excitement, and then dread that now I have no excuse not to see the dentist.


How’s life looking where you live? How’s it going?



Partner and I are still quarantining away from everyone, even though things are opening up around here. They are immuno-compromised, and we both know that we are in a midst of a climb in cases right now. What you see reported right now is largely from Memorial Day weekend and it’s related festivities. I think the scariest thing is the ease at which people are dropping any sense of pretense at protecting themselves. One of my friends is heading to the beach with their family tomorrow, and I can’t fathom making that decision.
