How to enjoy the Coronavirus Apocalypse

I don’t know why everybody says self-quarantine is boring.

Simple steps can make it quite enjoyable.

First, be born a neurotic introvert misfit loner.

Second, spend most of a long life being miserable in various cities, constantly chafing under conditions everybody else seems to think are just fine.

Third, give up on the wisdom everybody has been telling you for decades and deliberately head out to be a penniless desert recluse. What could possibly go wrong?

Then just do that for a couple of decades. Takes a while to get it right.

You shouldn't ask these questions of a paranoid recluse, you know.

    So how did things go during the latest round with the prothestist? Were you able to appropriately convey your displeasure with the fit in a certain area???

    Yeah, I should have mentioned that. It went quite well. There was one thing bugging me about the socket that was a real deal breaker – that turned out to be an easy fix. A couple of other minor tweaks and we were good.

    So the leg gets sent off somewhere for fabrication. Everything being in a state of disruption, there’s no serious prediction on how long that will take. I don’t even have an appointment date.

    @Joel Could be worse about no appointment date, I suppose. At the VA, for 2 MRIs and 2 nerve conduction tests in October; I got a results review appointment for February. Then another office line to get MY copy of MY results. Going to civilian neurosurgeon for consult – same one who did my 5 spine surgeries. Good reason I didn’t do VA for those. 🙂

    Hang in there.

To the stake with the heretic!
