WHO CAN MAKE LOVE WITH ZOOM?
The Covid 19 scourge has created opportunities and challenges.
It has confined me to my house for the last 200+ days.
I doubt I would even know how to interact with people any longer. The only time I go out is to buy groceries.
When I look out through the window, thesun hurts my eyes and I called my eye doctor.
She says I need to get out and see natural light more.
That it’s not enough to see electric light only.
Now, sometimes I jump in my Jeep and take a long drive to nowhere to listen to music and gaze at the countryside, feed my eyes with natural Vitamin D sunlight.
But the Covid-19 is scheduled to harvest 400,000 people in the US by January 1, 2021, and it has only taken down 190,000 now.
The next 210,000 people that Covid-19 will grub by the end of this year must come from somewhere. These are not just numbers.
So I’ve been using Zoom for everything.
But who can make love to Zoom?
Fela would have stated it this way:
“How man go chop sweet without commoting di wrapper?”
