Mirror Pass

Mirror Pass, Earl Bliss, 1975

Today, Dan and Britt left town, bound for New York City. Before they left, we wined and dined them both. Last night, we had dinner at the Mission Taco Joint, the one in the Central West End, followed by Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams. This morning, we breakfasted at the Peacock Diner and were joined by Dan’s friend Vicki, who regaled us all with stories of her parents, their dog and her hiking adventures around the area. At one point I interrupted her monologue with a question, have you ever thought of doing standup? With a straight face, she answered yes. All of this eating has not been very good for our Weight Watchers, but now that we are home all alone again, we plan on getting back on track. Over the last couple of weeks, over which our children and their significant others have been visiting us the Omicron variant of the coronavirus has exploded with infection across this country. Yesterday, saw more than a million new infections. The kid’s social life and by proxy all the while our associating with them have likely left us more exposed to our own infections than I would have preferred, but that’s all water under the bridge now. None of us have suffered any symptoms. We were all triple vaxxed. We’ll just have to wait a while and see if anything develops.
