To be honest, I am not very sure of what social distancing is. However, I do know I have heard a lot of this term since the Corona Virus came about. My belief is that “social distancing” is being social while keeping a safe distance from others. During this crisis that seems admirable, but how pertinent would it be if we didn’t have this virus? Can you imagine if married couples (or couples living together) decided they wanted to socially distance themselves from each other? When you think about it that might not be such a bad idea for some folk, especially when you have disagreements. What about socially distancing yourself from your boss at work? I think a lot more people might like that idea as well. Some may like to do that every day. How about if a police officer pulls you over? Would you like to socially distance yourself away from him or her? Speaking of which, how many police officers do you think want to encounter any lawbreakers right now? If I was a police officer right now, I might just give everyone a free pass. Once we finally conquer this disease I think a lot of people will be very happy. However, it feels like the term “social distancing’ may be here to stay. People don’t hug much today. In fact, people don’t even shake hands. I think the new custom greeting is to simply touch elbows. That is fine for now, but will you keep up this procedure once this is all over? This epidemic has changed all of our lifestyles. Once it is over, will you go back to shaking hands and hugging? If you are not familiar with the term “social distancing” then I suggest you read up on it. If it is not a part of your current vocabulary then you might want to incorporate it. Thank you all for checking out my Daily Thought. As always I wish you the very best that life has to offer.
