Z is for Zebra ~ 4/30/20

You all know I am a “Grey’s Anatomy” fan. Seriously! Lol 😂 I also love “New Amsterdam”. Dr. Max Goodwin is a kind version of “House”. “Carol’s Second Act” is cute. Starring the adorable Patricia Heaton. Then there’s “St. Elsewhere” and “ER”. And if I kick it back even further there is “Marcus Welby MD”

Huh? What? Where was I?


“When you hear hoofbeats, think of horses 🐎 🐎 not zebras 🦓🦓”

Every medical show I have ever watched had an episode or two around this caution. Sort of like Occam’s Razor. What has the fewest assumptions is usually true.

In 30 minutes or an hour these TV docs always figure out the zebra diagnosis at the 11th hour to save the day. Horse diagnosis isn’t nearly as entertaining 🤔. We want a nice bow 🎁 on the package.

Well folks our world 🌎 is now one big Zebra. Covid is effing exotic. In my wildest dreams I never could’ve imagined this pandemic. Quarantine? Uh nope. We’re free here!

The absurdity hit home when during our employee meeting yesterday our chief said “we’ve learned many lessons in these last eight weeks at home”. WTF! Has it been that long?

Huh? What? Where am I?

Why yes. Yes it has!

As for the Dub’s, we’re of the watch and wait in the reopening the economy. Not taking any chances. And fully aware of how lucky we are that we don’t have to go out. #grateful #humbled #givethanks

Now as Dennis Miller used to say on SNL “That’s the news and I am outta here”. My #AprilA2Z is fin. But like a bad penny, I’ll be back.

As always more to come.

  1. Congrats on finishing A-Z. Maybe I will do it next year. God, who knows where will be or what we will be doing a year from now. So, I didn’t see “The Good Doctor” on your list??? 😊

    1. I know I should put the Good Doctor on my list but it conflicts with something else that we watch. I don’t remember what offhand. Maybe I should catch it streaming.

      And definitely join in the shenanigans next year. A-to-Z is a treat.

  2. Congrats on completing another A to Z, Jill. I can’t believe it’s been so long either, and getting longer for us – end of May at this moment, although they are going to let the golfers out again, non-contact sport you know.

    1. Thanks Janet!
      I wish we would be end of May also truth be told. I am heartbroken for the folks who’ve lost their livelihoods. But it worries me that reopening too soon is going to be a worse outcome.
