Affecting Me? Me? Maybe.. a little

Yesterday, while watching TV, I realized I might have cabin-fever and might, MIGHT, have over reacted a little. I was watching TV and a commercial for granola bars came on.


I won't bore you with the actual commercial, but it started how "right outside your door" was nature and Yosemite National Park, in the sun, could be embodied by a Nature Valley Granola bar.

I called Ed in the room to replay the commercial, stopping at the "right outside your door" section and said, emphatically - Ed might say manically, "Outside what fucking window? Look at this window. You don't see Yosemite do you? DO YOU? You don't even see the fucking sun. " I then hit play and it rolled on to the lovely Yosemite National Park, which I have visited often, in the sunshine. Pause again. "Yeah, Yeah! Because EVERYONE lives next door to a National Park! What the fuck, we can't even GO outside. Between the Covid and the cold, we are living in a nightmare, and they show happy fuckers playing in Yosemite in the Summer!"

For some unknown reason, Eddie backed away and said maybe I was in a bad mood.

Really? REALLY! I haven't been in the warmth enjoying outside in 18 months! I don't need to see maskless white young sundressed and tanktopped thangs telling me that a cruddy oatmeal bar is all I need is to enjoy life.

  2. I'm with you. I raise a finger (guess which one) anytime a commercial comes on showing people frolicking maskless. Frolicking maskless should not happen yet! Anywhere!
