So, our governor just announced a statewide stay at home order. I think, personally, this is wise as we likely have far more cases than are known, as there has been so little testing done. The only way we are going to get ahead of this virus is to do extreme measures. If at the end of the day, they seem like they were an overreaction, than they were effective. I can tell you what my friends in the ER and CCU are saying (they are freaking out) and what my friends in research are saying (they are making significant progress at rapid speed).
Besides what feels like the world as we know it coming to an end, and the true existential crisis for many people, life goes on. Went shopping today and the store shelves were fully stocked and the staff was taking cleaning seriously. Most people, except for one oblivious woman, were staying far apart. We disinfected and washed our hands thoroughly. There’s still traffic on the roadways (although very light by southern Ca standards).
Tripp, Sir, and I are all well, although I’m sad that I won’t be seeing Sir for a while. I work in an essential field so I must minimize my interactions with others. I have little desire to be sexually active anyway, and yet my cock seems to have other ideas. It’s hard constantly. It’s hard for hours each morning. Weird, huh?
I’m by nature an introvert, so staying home doesn’t bother me. Tripp, on the other hand, is going to be a problem. We’re expecting at least 3 weeks of the stay at home, and I know he will be climbing the walls. We’ve got some workouts downloaded, which I think is essential, and when it stops raining, we have a nice yard we can hang out in.
I’d like to say we’re going to have a lot of sex, but right now neither of us is particularly feeling that burn. Maybe that will change. I hope so.
I’m going to keep up the blog for now, unless things get really hairy, because writing helps me cope and I hope reading something besides the news and social media helps you.
All I can say is stay strong, reach out to your friends and loved ones, and wash your hands frequently. I truly wish each of you the best in these trying times. Things are going to get worse for a bit, but they will get better.
