Readers can you believe it’s Friday again. I hope you are all holding up well. The gif above depicts my feelings when confronted with the thought of one more game of Call of Duty, but hey folks hang in there we are in the home stretch so hold the line; be creative, try to get a little exercise in and don’t let it get to you. If it’s too much for you to handle, resist the temptation to engage in tele-therapy. You’re going to pay $150+ per hour to a jackass who’s studied psychology so they could understand themselves, instead schedule a Zoom or Skype shoot the shit with your friends. What’s a shoot the shit?
Rumor has it that a shoot the shit was invented by a boatswain. It’s a social interaction during which any topic can and is discussed. Participants don’t need to know anything about the topic or topics being discussed, they can use uncensured profanity, insult anyone they wish or change the subject altogether. Far more effective than the therapist and you can save your money for some ammo so you’re ready when the range opens up. So, let’s shoot the shit.
So, sanitize your home as you have been doing and limit social contact to a minimum, in other words continue to follow the CDC guidelines. If you’re infected and asymptomatic, which is a common condition, stripping naked and standing under a U.V. tanning lamp may improve your sex life but will do nothing to rid you of the infection. Placing a cookie sheet under a U.V. light for a couple of minutes or less will sterilize the cookie sheet. Keep in mind that ultraviolet light has a carthogenicity component, intensity and dosage needs to be carefully controlled as is duration of exposure. I hope everyone is tracking this.
