OYSTERHOOD is reclusiveness or solitude, or an overwhelming desire to stay at home.
I might have had too much wine this afternoon. But the occasion was a celebration of note. We saw our dear friends, Erika and Kobus, for a braai at their place for the first time since the lockdown. And Kobus is the best braai-master we know. I am full of social and foody deliciousness right now. Also, my fridge is full of divine braai leftovers. I am not exactly very sober, but my love was the designated driver for this excursion and I am already (teeth flossed and brushed) safely in my bed.
A plane was taking off on our way back home, and the Mountain was glorious again.
The tangerine news continues to super-spread, but among it all what fascinates me the most is Putin’s take on how to keep safe during a pandemic. He has taken oysterhood to the ultimate level, and I cannot stop thinking that if Putin is that paranoid, then we should really take care. I never thought that I would say this, but when it comes to keeping safe during the pandemic, Putin is an inspiration. (This must be my un-sober pandemic brain talking.)
Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local.
