Messing with My Head

I went to the grocery store today, and there are very few customers. Everybody is being very responsible about social distancing. I’d even say way too paranoid and jittery for an area with zero cases.

And I’ve got to say, it’s really messing with my head to turn around and run away whenever I see another human being in a grocery aisle. And to see people turn around and run away from me.

I’m not a sensitive person. To the contrary, I’m oblivious and self-centered. But it’s still messing with my head.

One thought on “Messing with My Head”

  1. Come on, nobody is going out shopping in the lethal atmosphere that awaits outside our front doors now. Are you sure that in your hyper-alert mental state, all those other “customers” who scared you so weren’t just hallucinatory phantoms?

    Or perhaps the new hologram technology that many stores have started using since the onset of the plague, projecting fantasy images into their empty aisles to give their foolish customers a false sense of safety?

    Don’t worry, it will all be over by mid-May, one way or the other.
