“Nowadays everybody wanna talk like they got something to say but nothin' comes out when they move their lips just a buncha gibberish” - Dr Dre ft. Eminem
WARNING - truth being spoken.
I’m sick of hearing people complaining that they can’t go to weddings, celebrate milestone birthdays or go on holiday. Here’s my itinerary from 2020 (judge away):
April 2020 - Pussycat Dolls
May 2020 - friend’s wedding
June to July 2020 - volunteering at Euro 2020
June 2020 - Queen and Adam Lambert
August 2020 - Sister Act ft Whoopi Goldberg
October 2020 - Pussycat Dolls (rescheduled)
2020 was meant to be THE year. All the above, were POSTPONED. And you know what, that’s totally fine.
Here’s a reality check. I mean it’s only approaching a year but WE ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF A GLOBAL PANDEMIC. We have unfortunately surpassed 100,000 UK deaths today, 26 January 2021. This is not just a statistic. These are mums, dads, brothers, sisters, nans, grandads, nieces, nephews, cousins, friends. You may not know anyone that has lost their life from Covid or who is working on the frontline, but I do and it’s heartbreaking and devastating.
Perhaps you didn’t go to school, or have learned nothing from history. The bubonic plague wasn’t a bed of roses and neither were world wars 1 and 2, but people listened, took shelter and heeded advice from the wireless in order to survive. They didn’t have the luxury of Netflix, home food deliveries and Zoom calls like we do today. So no Karen. You can’t go out and meet your fellow Karens for a house party just because none of you are ill. Chances are you may be the picture of health, but that little covid sucker will hang onto you before inhabiting your nearest and dearest, until they are fighting for every last breath, before dying in pain and alone.
So get your vaccinations when you are permitted to, adhere to government instructions and wear your damn masks with pride. I can guarantee you if you’re on a plane falling from the sky, you’d grab that oxygen mask with two hands. None of this “I’m exempt” business.
