Operation Oysterhood: 26 August

OYSTERHOOD is reclusiveness or solitude, or an overwhelming desire to stay at home.

Desperate times. Desperate measures. I had pistachio ice cream and coffee with pistachio ice cream for lunch. It was either that or getting a stiff drink – or three – much too early in the day. I am not going to say what I had to do this morning; I will just note that some things are not ‘easy’.

The rest of the day was just work, work, work, but all of it emotionally rewarding. Quick dinner with my love. And I had my pistachio lunch while chatting to Mom and Krystian on Skype. Their food was just plain boring in comparison, but hey, they did not have to endure what I had had to.

Tomorrow is THE DAY. My second dose of Pfizer! It might also be the anniversary of my first kiss, but it’s not a very fond memory and I am not entirely sure, so from tomorrow on, the 27th of August will be celebrated as the day I got fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Exactly one year and seven months after lockdown was declared in South Africa. Who would have thought this possible back then? Wow.

Be kind. Wear a mask. Support local.
