Just when things are starting to get back to normal and restrictions are starting to ease, things take a step back. Victoria (State where I live) is suffering from a second wave of Corona Virus, albeit a small one, but still alarming, we were doing so well. I live in a hot spot with a large shopping centre nearby (I try to avoid). People just are not obeying a few simple rules. Yes I have been going out, yes I have visited with friends, yes I have opened the studio…but I still follow the rules. I hope we don’t get forced back into lockdown. Anyway we still have it better than some. Here is this week’s SYW
Have you ever ‘dined and dashed” (i.e. eaten the meal and then run out the restaurant door without paying)? As an adult, no, I am too much of a goody two shoes. I would hate it if someone did that to me, so I couldn’t do it. I might have joked about it a time or two, but have not actually done it. Left without paying a tip…now THAT I have done. You may think it’s bad form, but when the service and the food were both awful I felt justified.
Have you ever been in a car accident and either left the scene of the accident (providing it was a fender bender and not serious) or denied culpability for causing it when you did, (if it were minor or serious)? Again, no. I have been in several accidents, some of which were even my fault, but I have never left the scene.
(Oldie which has been asked many times before) Have you ever found a wallet or purse or some money (over $20) in the street and just taken it, thinking ‘finders keepers, losers weepers? Or would you be ‘good’ and hand it in? I don’t think I have ever found a large some of money. I found what looked like a very expensive bracelet, still packaged from the jewellers and I took it back to them in the hopes they could find the buyer. I have done that twice now. I also found a phone and then located the owner, twice as well! A few times I have found $5 or $10 and figured Karma owes me!
What was the last thing you stole or shoplifted? If you never ever considered doing that, tell us your secret! Accidentally or on purpose? Walked out without paying for something as I forgot I had it on me. I did recently actually put a slab of Coke in my shopping trolly and I assumed the girl had scanned it, but she never did. Realised when I got home…free coke!
So much to feel gratitude about, even while things are still a mess Corona wise. Apparently I live smack bang in the middle of an outbreak cluster. They are telling us to stay home, and while mostly I have, I also had a friend stay the weekend. We have all been self-isolating but at times you just have to break free – carefully! We are still social distancing and still washing hands and using sanitiser. Sadly people have been gathering in large groups and not keeping the distance. People are hugging and kissing and shaking hands. Many people here still think it is a hoax!
I have had three studio shoots in a week and my shoulder feels great! Again social distancing so no makeup artists yet, everyone needs to do their own hair and makeup. But we got some great marketing material for hopefully upcoming workshops. I also had my Designer Verdessa Fairy in and shot jumped in front of the camera too.
