Though many of my coworkers choose to work from the office, I work mostly from home. When shopping, I wear a mask, sanitize, and social distance. I will take another aisle to avoid contact with other shoppers. For one, many of them did not pass the mask-wearing 101 class. Their nose and often their mouths are naked for the world to see. My wife and I have decided to draw the line is some social contact with our children, grandchildren, and my wife's sister and her husband, who live about an hour away in Aydlett, NC. I know we are taking some risk. We have thrown some caution to the wind but not all. I turn sixty in a few days. I could drop dead while practicing Yoga in my living room. Or get into my car to die in an accident. Living has certain risks. My family is worth some risk to me.
