I'm getting back to living. Tonight is bowling night and I will be there.
I sat out the 2020 season because of the Covid=19 pandemic. Since then, lies have compounded lies and I'm tired of listening to them. I'm tired of being a cow in the herd. I have more reasons than ever to mistrust the government.
I'm a lifelong bowler. I enjoy the sport and the camaraderie of my local bowling alley, my "house." I've known many of my fellow bowlers for decades. Those of us who have bowled together for so long have become akin to family.
Yes, this is my first step back to the land of the living.
I'm going to shake off being afraid and I'm going to do something that I enjoy - bowling.
I'm not utterly stupid, though. I'm not about to hug people or even give a "high five" for a strike. I won't be alone in that. We bowlers are a bit smarter than that.
Some people will wear masks and I may be among them. If a member of the league tests positive for Covid-19, it would be prudent.
That's my statement for today.
