ONCE UPON A GENE – EPISODE 031
Quarantine – What We’re Missing, What We’re Not, and What We Hope Sticks Around
Synthiea and Effie are talking about what they miss, what they don’t miss and what they hope sticks around post-covid pandemic.
What we miss during quarantine.
What we don’t miss.
Effie doesn’t miss how hard it used to be to get on friends’ calendars when you wanted to hang out. Now you can find more time to connect through facetime. They don’t miss traffic. And they don’t miss hard pants. Effie doesn’t miss not being able to go to the playground, especially since Esme has started walking during the quarantine.
What we hope sticks around after quarantine.
Synthiea hopes working from home sticks around. Effie hopes people continue to be flexible and patient. She also hopes people continue to understand what families who have children with compromised immune systems are going through, especially those who have been on lockdown several times before for health reasons. Synthiea hopes the neighborliness sticks around and that everyone continues to be outside more. They both hope that people continue to show respect by wearing a mask in public.
