    I don't feel comfortable going to an empty office right now, certainly don't feel comfortable sitting in a restaurant. Have only ordered take out twice since early March, once for Mother's Day, once for our anniversary and don't plan on making it a regular occurrence. Having a close relative with pulmonary fibrosis that has progressed very quickly over the last 8 months is probably making me more sensitive to the issues than most people. I don't want him to die, and certainly not as a result of me or my family making him sick.

    I can totally understand this, and I don't think there's any "wrong" attitude about it, as we all have different family health situations. I'm more cautious than some of my friends for that reason. I have a couple people in my life that would be high-ish risk of complications if they contracted the covid.

    The part I can't get my head around, and I really don't know how I feel about is this: If we expect some kind of second wave, i think we also admit it'll be happening for a week or two before we really know about it. So there will be a week or two where the risk is higher, but we won't know. That's the kind of thing that really ramps up my anxiety.

    I agree, based on the lagging indicators, I assume the second wave has already started and we just don’t know yet. It certainly looks that way for Edmonton. Based on the current active cases, we could easily see more major outbreaks and ramping up of transmission at any time, especially considering the experts now believe asymptomatic transmission plays a minor role and people are acting like the virus is gone. Anecdotally, malls are now very busy and will only get busier in the next week, along will all the other reopenings.

    If anyone was personally locking down to reduce risk, it probably makes as much or more sense now than at any time previously.

    I’m treating hair cuts like the first snowfall... let the idiots at it and wait for them to infect each other, those who survive are not as stupid

    I did go for dinner last week though, but high end with a well ran ship, dunno if I’d do a “Calgary’s best” pub nor BPs/earls/other lacking food safety trained, min wage paid shit... but then again I have ate more drive thru delivered meals through this than I usually would... best not to over think it

    It's certainly possible to overthink things. I'm just trying to delay those things that I felt fine about delaying back in May, until July. I do not need a haircut, this mullet is really easy to maintain, and I dislike the dentist, so no rush for that either. From what I hear, places that have reopened are reasonably busy, so I don't feel I'm really helping out the small businesses by rushing, I'll let the people who are most eager handle that, and when it's less busy, I'll get in there.

    My wife just assumes everyone I talk about is from beyond, and it's kinda true. Bring her to the next brewery night, I'll explain.

    I'm so, so, almost ready; but, not quite...
    The savings I've amassed during this three months is ludicrous, though! Holy fuck is eating out (with a hefty liquor tab) ever expensive! The price of my child care has gone up by over 75% and I've still seen a tremendous increase in my regular account. From draft beer to draft Dodger.

    There's not a single restaurant that I'm itching to get back to simply for the benefit of eating in. The take out places are great from where we like so that has abated any urgency to go back. That and I still don't know how I feel about covid, and tend to be most cautious than laissez faire. Both of us are good cooks anyways so the need to go out pre-covid wasn't high and was always very expensive - the thought being if we go out they better be much better cooks than us!

    I will certainly admit with the weather improving, the desire for a patio beer has steadily increased. If only we could drink in the park like so many places...Le sigh

    I’m glad so many people are afraid to go to restaurants. Way easier to get a reservation these days, heck you can just walk right in to most places even with the restrictions.

    I'm finally out in a restaurant for some covidwings and Corona beer.

    It's now worth the value because the waitresses are Trampeded up, and their masks make them look like bandits, so it's suits them.
