I like this ‘distancing’ thing!

We went to the Safeway in the biggish little town about 35 miles away this morning, and…


…people are taking this “distancing” thing seriously. First time I’ve felt happily comfortable in a public place since I don’t remember when.


Also, just an FYI because I’m not actually endorsing the product, if you’re upset over the hand sanitizer shortage and happen to have access to a feed or livestock store…


This is what Neighbor L is using. Just passing it on, I don’t know if it’s any good.

    I hope you scored some chicken for TB? How well stocked were the shelves?

  2. Joel says:

    Yeah, I brought him some overpriced chicken. About twice as much as the frozen crap I got from Wally World and clearly not meant to be fed to a dog, but any stool in a bar fight will do.

    With the exception of paper, the store was well stocked. Don’t know why the TP thing is going on so long.

    Curicyn . . . https://curicyn.com/

    Appears to be some kind of patent farm critter “cure” for various surface ailments and claims not much of anything of fact. I’d not hazard a guess about its effectiveness on bacteria or, especially, viruses.

    Appears to be 99% “anodized water”.

    The whole TP thing is a mystery to me as well. We are weeks into the great shortage you would think that everyone had a supply by now. And just what were people doing back in the day when there pallets of the stuff up to the ceiling in the SAMs club. We’re they the ones that were buying the individual wrapped rolls that never made any sense to me?

    It seems that I’m a tp hoarder and never knew it. I did the math on our normal household supply, and figured that we’re good for about three months. Surely the stuff will be back in stock by then! If not, we may need to subscribe to the newspaper.

    I could get apprehensive about food supply. But tp? Never! There are just too many alternatives out there.

    I don’t think any of us that read TUAK get the TP thing. If this virus infects the mucus cells of the lungs, as I have read in a couple of places, then any TP beyond what is customary and usual for your household doesn’t make sense. I can hear my parents in the background with that parental disgust in their voices saying, “So, if everyone is jumping off the cliff, you’re jump too?” Good old herd/mob mentality.

    When you are as full of shit as are most of the hive dwellers in this country, you truly NEED a lot of TP.

    WallyWorld opens @ 0700 for shoppers. People are pleasant, quiet, orderly, & observing the distancing. On Tuesdays they open @ 0600 for old folks so last Tuesday I tried it. Arrived at 0540 & it was rainy, windy, chilly. Many cars in the lot but nobody @ the door. At 0550 I went to the door (locked) & I was alone. Suddenly I heard car doors slamming & a herd of people with canes & walkers rushed me. Crowded me out of the way, no observing distancing, it was like an old people’s reunion, “Hey Bubba, how you doing?” “Luella, haven’t seen you since church meeting last month!” Hugs & kisses flowed. The doors opened & they pushed their way in. I got a cart, went about 3 feet, & an 80 something y/o gal grabbed my cart. I looked at her & she said, “I’m sorry honey…I thought you was my husband.” (I had seen her outside & she was there alone). I smiled & said “I’m flattered maam” & me & the cart hauled butt away from the confusion. I scored a 6 pack of TP!

    I’m glad to see that the distancing thing is working. I suspect this is going to be normal for a while, probably until July anyway.

    The TP hoarding thing is a direct reaction to the fog of information from the mainstream media and all the other versions of news that people watch, read or hear. When a person knows zero about a subject that person has two choices, to believe everything or to believe nothing. And, if you believe everything and you are being told there will be shortages, you take action.

To the stake with the heretic!
