Since the invention of the smartphone we’ve been practising ‘social distancing’. We’re experts at it. Need food? Get Deliveroo to your sofa. Feeling lonely? DM a friend. Waiting for your coffee? scroll Instagram, TikTok, WhatsApp and email – simultaneously of course – don’t look up, ever. Walking to work? Put those dorky white airpod things in, and block out the rest of the world.
So I guess I am saying, living in a bubble seems to have become the natural state for us all – and now it’s the law of the land as we try and control the spread of the ‘rona.
I know, everyone is on edge as we navigate these uncertain times. But I am certain about one thing – the surf is pumping today, and the sun is out, the winds are offshore…and there’s plenty of space out the back to be 1.5 metres apart.
Please don’t selfishly hoard groceries.
