Tucking away still from Covid19 in Toronto

by Keisa
(Toronto. Canada)

It has been four days since I had to cancel my trip to Jamaica. Nightmares are gone. No longer disoriented thinking I did in fact make it to Kingston and it was all a very bad dream. No dream.

And I am somewhat conceding that it was possibly the right thing to do, staying put.

There are far less people riding the public transportation and yesterday at 8:30 AM underground parking at Yonge and Bloor must have had some kind of glitch because it said 367 spaces were available.

I could easily make the right turn onto Elm Street because the unruly Torontonians who just confidently step into the path of any moving vehicle were few and far between.

Inside the Atrium, janitors were busily wiping down and looking confused because Tim Horton's coffee shop was closing its shutters. I didn't mind. Because today I brought my lunch. And will be skipping coffee.

The elevators came down at lightning speed! Wow. Never seen that before. Reluctantly my butt found my chair.

And the emails said staff complement reduced as they had sent home everyone who recently got off a plane. Lucky them.

All over again.

But seriously, I had left my disposable gloves in the car. And I only wanted to wipe the printer, fridge, cabinets and microwave door once this morning. Hardly anyone was here. Good. I'm in no mood to hear about the ski trip and housebound cat.

Guess what. My colleague heard me typing and popped over. She was on her way for a 7 hour trip to Mont Tre Blanc; something like that, it's in Quebec. When she heard the ski hills were closed. Oh. Checking my email while she's talking. Hopefully they will send us home.

Costco was now manageable as an employee was stationed by the tissue and hand towel area making sure there was one per family. But I really needed her to move so I could go on Amazon and see if they had more items now in stock for me to add to cart.

I already had tucked away some baby wipes, orange juice, chips and biscuits, aspirin and eye drips, cough medication and a new back pack.

Wellesley's Note
OMG... all this is crazy my friend! One tissue and one hand towel per person? In the great CANADA?

What a time. But keep the faith though, you seem to be doing well so far. Keep us posted via the comments my friend.
