Moments of Joy
By Mary Jo
This has been a difficult year just about everywhere. A highly contagious virus, a lockdown, massive economic disruptions–I'm told that time travelers are being told to skip 2020 as they travel through time!
Yet people are adaptable, and even in dark times, we can find moments of happiness, some of which are actually a result of the lockdown. Perhaps something that was once routine is now noteworthy, or we're finding that spending so much time at home is providing unexpected benefits. The Wenches share some such moments.
For me, one such event was something that was once relatively routine: going out to dinner with the Mayhem Consultant. What made going out this particular time special was because we hadn't been out for dinner in months! Maryland had been under strict lock down for months, and the governor had just loosened the requirements to allow restaurants to serve food as long as it was outside and staff and guests were masked (at least until the food and drink appeared.)
