I just read this article from Drew Magary. He talks about going to DC to do a self guided walking tour and how he was not ready to be out and about even outside where everyone was wearing masks. He says this tells him he won’t be ready to fully embrace post pandemic life when it is possible.
I’m learning it’d be unwise to shock my system back to life in The After.

It made me think about how I will react to post pandemic life. I am different than Drew in that I have worked outside of the house during the pandemic. I have driven to Kentucky and back. I also didn’t really do much outside of the house before the pandemic anyway so I wouldn’t rush out to do all the things.
I might not rush out to take long plane rides full of strangers. I might not rush out to a packed indoor concert. I would go see family in Kentucky. I would get together with friends. I would take some day trips to cities nearby.
I don’t think my senses would be overwhelmed or that I would have a panic attack. It will probably feel weird, but I think it will be a good weird. A freeing weird. I hope it comes sooner rather than later.
