Finally, worrying is in style.

All my life I’ve been told that I worry too much. I don’t want to gloat, but it seems clear that my lifelong behavior, in the age of the COVID-19 pandemic has been proven to be wildly prescient. See? There WAS a big cosmic boot about to come down on our necks, I just knew it.

The lack of spontaneity that so often accompanies the ability to worry at an Olympic level is also useful now. I have a concise alphabetical list of people from the USA and in Northern Ireland with whom I check in regularly and if too much time passes (say, a day) without any response, I look up the number of their local police department so I will be ready to call someone to break down their door if need be. It is this kind of behavior that keeps the world safe and me sane.

Social distance!
