I tried to share my preoccupation about the schools not reopening with a friend.
“Don’t worry!” she said brightly. “Joe Biden believes in science. He will soon cure COVID!”
That was when I decided not to share the news that a mutual acquaintance has recently lost her grandmother. I’m not ready to hear a happy report that Joe Biden raises people from the dead. I already know he walks on water but I need to let these great news in gradually.
