Josh

It was a bit of a shock to hear that a coworker had died of covid. He was a good person, a burly, bearded guy. When I worked down at the other building, I usually assisted his team. So... I knew him. I thought he was a very nice person, a devoted dad, and husband. 

A current coworker also worked with him, so this morning, I said, "It was sad to hear about Josh." 

Another person said, "Josh who? What happened?" 

And my coworker said, "A guy we used to work with in the North Building. He supposedly died of covid." His fingers made air quotes and his eyes rolled. 

I do not understand this world.

I can't understand how some people can bear to live in a society so full of science and medical expertise.

My attorney lost his brother to Covid several months ago. He said one of his clients asked him, "Did he die OF Covid, or WITH Covid?" I could tell the question upset him. Does it really matter? The outcome is the same. People can be so clueless.

Our society is doomed.

There is way too much stupid in the world today, or maybe it's always been like that. I don't know anymore.

Like I said before….the world is full of strange people - really strange ones

There is no such thing as Covid. The little man in the spaceship told me so when he came to harvest human bodies to take back home with him to Alpa Centauri. 🙄

Darwinism at its finest!

My daughter is recovering from Covid and it has been rough on her - and she is only 32 and was vaccinated. Covid is no joke and it has been so frustrating that people don't want to stay safe and protect others.

That is truly frightening Debby.

You should have rolled your eyes and said to that guy, "I am about to kick you in the gonads!" - applying air quotes when you said "gonads".
Rest in Peace Josh.

Wow! What a pathetic excuse for a human being.
