THE HILARIOUS COVID-19 PANDEMIC A Flashback to the Execrable Year, 2020


S&P Oyster Bar, Mystic Seaport, Connecticut


WE WENT OUT TO DINNER!

     Yes, it's true. And let me take a moment to give the restaurant S & P Oyster a BIG HUGE plug. The service was excellent. The food just as good. The setting? How awful can a table for two along the water in Mystic, Connecticut be?

     The breeze, just enough to take the edge off the sunset. A cool temperature warmed by the heat lamps placed throughout the six-feet-apart tables.

     A sympathetic nod to the gloved and masked wait staff.

     Laboring as a table server for five years in NYC, I know how hard that must be. May the stupidity of the pointless safety gesture be short-lived.

     A prayer also for a reduction in media hysteria the first time someone catches a head cold after dining outside. A guess as to the first NY Times' headline?

     OUTDOOR DINING IN CONNECTICUT CLAIMS FIRST VICTIM. ACLU ON SCENE.

     A subhead to the headline would be the obligatory as follows:

WOMEN AND MINORITIES, AS ALWAYS, TO BE EFFECTED FIRST!

     I wish the New York Times hyperbole was just that. It is not. I am positive the lawyers and media will blame a completely unrelated case of prickly heat on the dastardly capitalists interested in making money at the expense of the health of nana and papa.

     The NY Times, of course, will gloss over the fact that the staff, out of work since mid-March, appeared so happy to be there.

     Making money, preparing for Memorial Day, and out and about like normal people.

     Lee and I were, as Ebbie Calvin "Nuke" LaLoush, would say . . . " . . . just happy to be here."
