Day {x + 9} of The Weird is the new normal

It looks like the next meeting of the county government’s Board of Supervisors will proceed via an online meeting. I need to get that set up for myself by next Thursday morning. At this rate, that feels like it’s two weeks away, rather than just five days. Because time dilution got really bad right before the COVID-19 started throwing everything into disarray. Now, time seems diffused.

Case in point: my son suggested we make a nice dinner tonight and have a home ceremony in lieu of the awards gala that was scheduled to happen tonight, where I would be honored as Elected Official of the Year by the Milwaukee County Democratic Party. Instead, my wife suggested we get a fancy take-out dinner. But, a lot of the nice restaurants in Milwaukee are closed tonight. So we’re back to making dinner. It’ll be homemade pasta with ragout. (I had to look it up; it sound good.) And I will probably improvise a brief speech to make up for the mildly longer one I would have given tonight.

Best part: we will still dress up, including my son wearing the snazzy tuxedo we got him for the gala dinner.

Otherwise, life goes on in the new normal of The Weird.

I am a resident of the Bay View neighborhood in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and a member of the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors. That sometimes comes up on here, as it's kind of a small part of my life. No official county business happens here. I'm mostly using this now to give a rough draft account of how we're dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. God help us all.
