Risk. We played Risk last night. It's a game of world domination. Kevin dominated the world. I had the best strategy, but somehow I lost. I use the same strategy every time. I don't remember winning, but there's no doubt it's the best strategy. The world is now run by a twenty-something with a very bossy streak to his personality. But it's a sunny day.
Beard Update. Kevin abandoned me and shaved yesterday. Now all the "disgust" is directed at me. I admit that it doesn't look so hot and is a bit hard to look at today, but if you squint just right....
In other news
Unemployed. 3.3 million unemployment claims beats the previous single month record of 700,000. The average is 200,000 a month. The stock market seems to have already figured this out because it's up in response to a stimulus bill passing on a 96 to 0 vote in the Senate.
Bare Feet. I think I'm more productive working without shoes.
Bureaucracies. We got our tax return in the mail. There are a few things still working that my government does well!
Math. I think it's interesting that politicians feel the need to explain math. While the daily "new cases" and "death" counts continue to grow, the rate of growth is declining. That's a pretty straightforward concept. It's a math concept that is consistent with a high school diploma. Do they really need to explain this? Is this really such a hard concept.
Escape Room. Our family loves to go to escape rooms and have done so in numerous cities. Of course today even touching all those well-touched clues feels like a mistake and yet more than ever aren't all of us really just trying to escape the comfort of our own homes. Seems like the beginning of a new Escape Room theme for when we finally get back to normal.
