Day 58 – Add the Magick of Humor!


day58Taco Cat begged and pleaded, and so I gave in.  I designed him his own Covid-Carry Basket, complete with sanitized gloves, a shark face mask, sanitizing wipes, and, naturally, Florida Water — something no self-respecting magickal cat wouldn’t be without.

You know, it has always been bad enough when leaving the house that I have to remember my keys, my phone, my purse, my driving glasses, my wallet, and whatever else.  Did I unplug the hairdryer?  Did I remember to turn off the sewing iron?  What about the oven?  Is that off?  NOW, I have to remember (on top of all that) a face mask, gloves, and some sort of hand sanitizer.  So, I created a car basket, and I have a routine complete with which hand opens the car door after I’ve been in public.  Because it is stupid to wear gloves, and then touch all over the inside of your car with the gloves still on.  So…I had to have a waste bag, too, and spray, and…

Argh.

To make it a bit more fun, I threw Taco Cat in the basket, too!  I also made up a list of things you can do in public because you are wearing a face mask…

Stick out your tongue at the jerk who grabbed the last toilet paper roll.

Mutter discreetly Doreen Valiente’s Witches Rune at the lady taking up THE WHOLE AISLE with her cart.  She’ll think you are just chewing gum.

Sneeze without putting your face in your elbow.  Delightfully, the snot won’t get on your glasses.

Your Challenge Today:  No matter what happens — make it funny (within reason, of course).  Humor is a magnificent tonic!  Use it!

Big hugs!
Peace with the Gods
Peace with Nature
Peace Within!

  1. Just what I needed to read !! Yes to the tongue poking at the guy on the mobile phone on the way out the supermarket taking up the whole exit , walking as slowly as humanly possible !;

  2. Lol! Taco Cat cracks me up! I’m sure he was very specific that he needed the big toothed fishies for his mask, so they could eat the wee viruses. Lol!

    Wearing a mask in public is also a good way to practice good eye contact; and by that I mean “glaring angrily with your eyes like you’re channeling Medusa and trying to turn people into stone”. Lol! And how DOES one drive with rubber gloves on? They stick to the dang steering wheel! Lol!

    Alan has been finding the humor in this whole situation lately. He sees people driving in their cars with their masks still on and starts dying laughing. Literally his words “Why the hell do you have that thing on in your car?! You’re by yourself! Your car doesn’t have COVID! Dumbass!” Lmao! The kicker is that some of them have their windows down while their masks are on. *facepalm*

      1. Holy crap!!! 😱 I hope she’s okay! As if cell phones weren’t bad enough…now it’s face masks that are a driving hazard. Sheesh!

  3. This is just great! I love it!! Using gloves, though, has a down side. People use them to keep bugs off of their hands, but then forget that the bugs are now on the gloves. Personally, I don’t use them, because I think that the uneducated users of them are spreading more disease. I agree that you should put something on your hand when handling produce ( plastic produce bag), but I think that using hand sanitizer liquid or wipes after handling things and then thoroughly washing your hands as soon as you hit the door is best. Sanitize hands, put your groceries in a dedicated carrying box or bag(s) in the car, sanitize your hands, then get in the clean car, take your mask off and put it dirty side up on the sunny dashboard, sanitize hands once more. Then drive home normally. Let the sanitizing hand cleaner of choice go before and after you, so you don’t pick up or transfer the bugs.

    When you get home carry the groceries to the door and set them down, change your shoes, sanitize hands and open the door. Pick up the groceries and take to your dedicated decontaminate area. Go wash your hands. Then how you handle your groceries as far as unpacking is up to you (spray or wipe packaging). When I’m done putting things away, I wash my hands again, grab my Lysol and spray the ‘decom’ area and the shoes I left outside. I leave the shoes until the spray dries before I bring them in. We have a pair we leave at the door for going out in public.
    This sounds harder than it is. I just get very worried about the glove thing! Have a funny day 😉
