Well, this has been an eye opening weekend.
I finally am starting to understand how this virus works.
Sneezing: thousands of droplets being shot into the air, virus missiles, remaining in the air for hours, or long minutes.
Singing: droplets catapulting virus on the melodic strains.
Talking: hundreds of virus carrying droplets hanging on every word.
Loud talking(Randy, use your inside voice): even more droplets, holding their ears, still hanging onto every word.
So, here are the rules.
Mask your face so no one can see you smile. They will think you are as scared as they are.
Whisper so that any virus that does squeeze through the openings in the mask at least won’t have that water slide “wheeee”.
If you go to church and keep the distance rule, DO NOT SING OUT LOUD, DO NOT SHOUT FOR JOY TO THE LORD, DO NOT PRAISE HIM WITH UPLIFTED VOICE, AND MAKE SURE THE PREACHER SPEAKS IN A QUIET WHISPER!
WEAR A MASK AND DO NOT TOUCH!
AND IF YOU FEEL LIKE YOU HAVE TO SING, well, humming may be okay…quietly, mouth closed.
And silent prayer will be okay.
But, don’t ask, and don’t touch.
