What Else Is There?

I just got back from the car wash about a minute ago and came upon a rude realization that my wife awoken me on when I informed her the trip to the car wash was a wasted trip. I had in mind to vacuum out the interior because it was filled with all manner of dirt, pollen and dog hair. But, while you can wash the car, you can’t vacuum it because some genius thought Coronavirus lived inside vacuums,

I’m not certain how scientifically true that is because I have no evidence disputing their claim. Maybe it’s true, but if that is the case, shouldn’t I been infected with COVID-19 everytime I stepped inside my car and drove around? Shouldn’t I be dead? Or in the hospital with a ventilator run down my throat and forced to breathe pure oxygen?

At this moment, I’m upset because many people are doing things that defy common sense. This little case demonstrates that most clearly. I don’t believe whoever thought that corona virus lived in a vacuum had his or hers facts straight.

As for the rest of this stuff we are forced to endure, it’s a scientific case of trial and error. According to an article in the New York Times, the relaxing of restrictions is at best a gamble–roll of the dice. Frankly no one knows anything about this and that is what so terrifying for everyone. Are we doomed to a sudden reemergence come November when our guard is down? Is this whole scare going to enforce a new normal and redraw our political and social fabric to those that believe in the safety and security of the many at the sacrifice of our freedom and liberties. Will this pandemic create new civil wars and revolutions for the foreseeable future?

One thing that is a certainty, is the fact that everything has turned upside-down and many who lived in the comfort and complacency of the status quo are feeling more and more isolated and frustrated. So now everyone needs to buy their own Dust Devils to clean their car’s interiors with.

I'm a prospective writer with an unassuming job working as a janitor at a tribal casino near Spokane, Washington. Writing is my passion, though my family seem to think I'm wasting my time. This is fine; their expectations of me are low and they tend to leave me alone in my office writing out my stories of mystery and suspense. I have a BA in English with emphasis in professional writing from Washington State University, my website: www.jerryschellhammer.com is available for everyone to see my list of writing accomplishments and hopefully buy my first published book, or my many short stories available on Amazon.
