Post Covid: Scary

Now that the vaccines are out and about, and we’re impatiently awaiting the end of pandemic restrictions, have you put any thought into a post-Covid world, and what that might look like?

I’ve wondered if masks might become a permanent part of my wardrobe, if the Western handshake will be replaced by the Eastern bow, if my poor neglected passport will ever escape the drawer its imprisoned in, but that’s as far as it went.

Until today.

In the kitchen, baking cookies I had no business baking, I saw it—our post-Covid world.

You’ve seen it too, in all its HD clarity.

Touchstone Pictures 2009

It’s been awhile since 2009 so you might not remember, but the movie ends with people stumbling out of their houses, blinking in the daylight most of them haven’t seen in years. Unshaven, unwashed, wrapped in bathrobes, they’re lost in a world they’re no longer familiar with.


OMG, Yes! Have you seen my robe?

FYI, the cookies came out pretty well 🙂

  1. Have you seen Surrogates 2? People across the globe mysteriously begin baking cakes, pastries and cookies. Humanity is alarmed when it realizes all the world has been transformed into an episode of The Great British Baking Show.

  2. Haven’t seen it. I’m all for keeping the masks, and honestly never liked handshakes since I have no idea when the person I am shaking with last washed their hands. The cookies look great!

    1. With Ontario still in lockdown until May 20th, I’m not going to be meeting anyone new, anytime soon, but yeah, I think it’s time to ditch the handshakes and not with the elbow bumps I’ve seen on TV. They’re ridiculous 🙂


  3. Thanks for introducing me to a movie I’ve not seen but know I will enjoy, Aimer.

    We’re slowly coming out of restrictions in the UK. Baby steps and all that, but I’m still spending most of my time at home. It’ll stay that way until I’ve at least had my 2nd vaccine (due in June).


    1. The U.K. numbers are giving us a lot of hope, over here 🙂 I’m also due for my second shot in June, and being careful until then.

      If you find Surrogates, let me know what you think 🙂
