For eleven weeks, nothing but quarantine. For the last three weeks, total craziness with a board meeting, graduation, and teen ball – all with the restrictions of social distancing, massive disinfection protocols, massive temperature-taking, masking (and the fighting over requiring/requesting thereof), and all the planning that went into pulling those events together.
Now, because people seemed to think the virus had an expiration date issued by government officials, and it was okay to resume partying like it was 1999, my state is enjoying a resurgence of positive viral cases. <insert your personal political/medical/conspiracy theories here>
I beg your indulgence for this weak Word of the Week. I really need to decompress and vegetate for a day or three. The graphic below is super awesome though.
Man of the World
A knowing man.
If you’d like to be a Man (or better, Person; or best, They) of the world, look no further than this phenomenal poster created in 1931 by John B. Sparks. His history may have ended nearly 100 years ago, but it began 4000 years prior to that. Aesthetically, it’s gorgeous. Too bad some of the information contained therein is positively ugly.
