Sociability Lesson

The quarantine is also having a good impact on the sociability skills of the local folks. The parents of Klara’s classmates who have spent 3 years pretending not to notice me and each other see me walking around the neighborhood out of their windows, crash through the doors, stagger out, and yell,

“Hello! It’s me, Jamie’s Dad! Remember me??? Jamie isn’t here but I’m so, so glad to see you!!”

Even I caught myself writing long, lyrical emails to overseas colleagues who normally don’t get much beyond “I acknowledge receipt of your chapter” from me.
