#SoCS ~ 11/28/20

We’re baaack. Time for another round of #SoCS where the lovely Linda writes and I rewrite “Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “opt.” Use it as a word or find a word with “opt” in it and base your post on that. Have fun!” If you’d like to opt in to the fun and frolics, here are the rules and pingback.

See how I did that? Right outta the gate. Opt in … to the fun and frolics … So many disclosures so little time. There are rules, the rules upon rules upon rules and in some instances the consumer can “opt in” or “opt out”. But where’s the fun and frolic in that?

Take two … think, think, and think.

Opt … Hmmm

What about Optimus Prime?

No, I am your father”

Wait! What? Where’d that come from? Optimus Prime is a Transformer not part of Star Wars. But I’m still right and unhappy since one can be right or happy but not both. Doh! No Mandela effect for me.

Speaking of Star Wars cuz we were. In 2014 when we went to the East Coast Disney, we spent a day in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Our favorite ride bar none was the Star Wars attraction. A 4D event where we’d strap in four to a row and go on different versions of a space battle. Yeah I’m trying to explain it but not using the right words. Let’s just say as with stats, the permutations of possible trips were endless. Which is why we rode the ride about six or seven times in a row. Da best!

I think it’d be fun to go back after all this Rona crap is over. Though the parks are open now. We could opt in … brave the wild. But alas, we are opting out. Staying put. This is all so crazy. Like somehow places think limiting their hours reduces your chance of catching the virus. I think not. The virus can’t effing tell time. Luck of the draw people. Even when you are ultra careful, it can happen. Even if the odds are forever in your favor. Hunger Games. So what’s a girl to do? Stay home, social distance if I can’t, wear a mask, and wash my hands.

Thanksgiving Day, our fair mayor installed a curfew. From 10 pm to 5 am, we cannot be out. If caught red handed, the fine is $1000. Hmmm. All this does is hurt the second shifters or others who work until 10 pm and can’t get their stuff before curfew. I find that ri-donk-a-donk. I wonder about the logic. Though you don’t have to tell me twice. I am a believer, living in fear. I am opting to stay in from 10 pm to 5 am. Because I can. Thank you sweet baby Jesus.

And with that, I am fin. Until next time. Hope your Saturday is as safe as can possibly be.

As always, more to come.
