The surrealism of everyday life

Recommended Posts

So this whole virtual happy hour thing.

 

Tonight we participated in one for the first time...small group.

 

But it amazed me that the people/persons most annoying at real happy hours, is/are still the most annoying at virtual ones.  And maybe even moreso?! Because you can't just get up and walk away, as I've done at Pegu Club.

As if anything else were ever a consideration.

Two of the last three nights I received calls soliciting the purchase of a timeshare in Orlando and Las Vegas.

This has to go in the surreal thread because I'm not complaining with an undercurrent of bragging.  We managed to file our taxes in mid-March (electronically) and were owed refunds from both the Federal and State/Local governments.  The pandemic is now severe enough that the filing deadlines are extended.  However, its only April 3rd and we've now received our refunds from both.  WTF?!  We would've gladly agreed to defer these funds for a year if asked (especially from NYS/NYC).

I have now "attended" three happy hours and a dinner and am finding it very easy to walk away. I'm at my house, so no one is coming over to ask me whether I want another drink or something to eat. Thus, I have many reasons to wander off.

The boy was going nuts this afternoon while I had a Zoom call and the spouse was out. He Zoom-bombed my call which was cute, but started getting annoying so I had to decamp to the bathroom which is the only place in the apartment that has a lock on the door. Clearly a first!

My friends moved their WiFi hotspot to the front of their house so they can zoom from their car.

In the course of getting my kitchen ready for Passover I've discovered that I have 2 boxes of food coloring.

We have a safe word/term, "Someone's at the door," for use by anyone in our many and sometimes very long Zoom gatherings wants to leave.

 

Unfortunately, since lovely spouse organizes most of them, I'm the one person for whom that's not quite safe.

You are very brave to have posted that.

It's not like I bought either of them. My cred remains in tact.

Was it not popular before? Because I kind of thought it was.
