Simpler Times

Dear Internet,

Let’s all just take a deep breath and think back to simpler times, specifically November 30, 2017 when I saw this white stretch hummer exiting the Taco Bell drive-thru.

It was definitely after midnight when I took this photo

Somehow I managed to take this photo, then I managed not to delete it from my iphotos, and now whilst scrolling for some interesting photos in this time of self-isolation, this photo made me laugh.

But then I kept scrolling backward through iphoto and I realized with some chagrin that actually this photo was taken during an awful grim period in my life. It wasn’t a  “ha-ha” photo but rather a macabre “look at that, people are still out there having a good time.”

With shelter in place, nobody is out there having a good time. We are all in this uncertain time together. I don’t know if that makes it better or worse. All I know is I’d rather be in that stretch white hummer right now.
