If you thought the world was going to end, what would you do to protect your family? We have answered the question, at least for many Americans. The first thing to do when preparing for Armageddon is to stock up on toilet paper and paper towels. I would have thought canned goods would be swept off the shelves along with any other staple foods like beans, flour, and pasta. But no! Bounty paper towels and brand-name toilet paper were bought in a stampede of frantic end-of-world shoppers. Needless to say, gun sales went way up because people needed to protect their precious paper hoard.
I was completely flabbergasted by this strange decision. Ironically, about a month after this run on ass-cleaning implements, people flocked to the service desk at Costco and other stores trying to return their massive toilet paper acquisitions. Costco had a sign up saying no toilet paper returns.
HL Mencken said that nobody ever lost money underestimating the intelligence of the American consumer. Without doubt he’s right.
Mrs. Lion is returning to work next week. Her boss is letting her work from home. That’s a good thing. We really can’t afford risking getting infected. We both have underlying conditions that would probably make the disease fatal. I’m not likely to get called back to work anytime soon. My company is in the entertainment business. I wonder if I’ll ever get called back. As long as millions of other people are out of work, the extra money will keep flowing in and Mrs. Lion and I will be okay. If a lot of people go back to work, that money will dry up and we will be in trouble.
I heard on the news today that the World Health Organization said that there is no evidence having once contracted COVID-19 you are immune from contracting it again. If that’s the case, I don’t know how a vaccine could ever be created. This really could be the end of the world. I’m pretty sure we’ll figure something out. I’m hoping that this pandemic is demonstrating how much we need a serious leader in the White House.
If you’re wondering why am not writing about male chastity, spanking, or some other sexual topic, it’s because right now I’m kind of tired of them. I’ve also discovered that although we have a lot of readers, very few take the time or trouble to “Like” our posts or leave comments. Compared to other blogs that have less traffic, our audience is quite quiet.
Mrs. Lion reads my posts, and I read hers. We get a lot of information from them. In that sense, we are both getting the feedback we really need. Still, I have long hoped that we could form a little community of people that would exchange ideas and feelings. I won’t bother asking what you think because you won’t answer. That’s okay. I’m really grateful you take the time to read what we write. It means a lot to me.
