I caught Smallpox a month before my 3rd birthday; 60 years ago.
I was living in a town with a population under 7,000 in remote northern Canada.
Smallpox had been eradicated from Canada 2 years previously.
WTF am I supposed to think now ?
I wear a mask, I don't socialize much, I distance a lot.
I hope and pray that COVID will be eradicated in a few years.
Hugs.

You may be over it now, but what will happen in the future because you got COVID.
Chickenpox was popular when I was a kid.
People held chickenpox parties to achieve herd immunity.
These kids got older and many of them got shingles.
They would not wish shingles on their worst enemies.
I am wishing that COVID does no harm in the future.

Stupid viruses ! :(

How cautious will you be on Halloween? i.e. when you open the door to bunches or huge groups of kids, as they cheerfully and loudly chime "Happy Halloween" as a light breeze blows in your face. N95, regular mask, extra dose of Zinc tab or lounge, hold your breath, keep at a distance, or no worry. :-D
