Dear 2020:

You suck! January started with hopes of a fun new year. I was super excited. Then March rolled around. Shut downs, pandemics and quarantines have been absolutely draining. I have tried my best to adapt to the situation at hand. I’ve learned many things along the way. I’ve become an office helper. I’ll be honest, office work hasn’t been my gig but I’ve tried my best. I have become a hair colorist, a manicurist and pedicurist and most recently I’ve become a nurse learning to give my mom shots. I’m an errand girl, an Uber Driver and a Gardner. I admit it!!! I suck at it all. My memory loss has caused me to be a horrible office helper. And while I’m awesome at investigating doing nails is not my thing. I sanded my nails with a hand sander and now they won’t grow back. I’m afraid of needles so nursing has been a catastrophe and tonight when I colored my moms hair I quickly realized a hair stylist I am not. My moms neck and face were covered in hair dye. I think she might blow a popsicle stand when she sees herself in the mirror and I have to break the news. “No! These aren’t age spots!” Prayers greatly appreciated. 🙏🏻

Today is June 4th. It’s summer for goodness sakes. I want to travel. I want to go to the beach. I want to do lunch and I want to go dancing! At a club with tons of people. So 2020….Let’s make a deal. Let the hair and nails salons open, let office people return to work and let’s agree to allow the last six months of 2020 to get back to normal. I need a VACA ASAP!!

Dear COVID-19

I’m writing this letter because I think it’s time we go our separate ways. I know this comes as a surprise, after all you’ve been stalking the country for the past four months. It’s my guess you think we like you. We don’t!!! Don’t take this personal. It’s not you, it’s me. We just don’t have anything in common. You’re a total drag!

We don’t share the same goals. You cause chaos and mayhem, heartache and illness often times followed by grief for others and let’s just face it……You bring nothing to the table other than a lot of boredom and overeating. I don’t mean to hurt your feelings but you’re totally a “Debbie Downer”

I have a life to live. A life filled with peace, love joy and happiness. A life surrounded by the people I love enjoying life to the fullest and believe me, enjoying each other’s company is better when in person opposed to FaceTime or ZOOM!! Personally, I have so many things to do. Travel, nails, hair and I’ll just be honest….I want to do lunch…..at a restaurant!!! It’s just no fun pigging out in my bedroom. There are only so many Hallmark movies a person can watch. As you can see, life doesn’t have room for infectious viruses like you! I know I’m being blunt but you need to go away and stay away!

Thanks for the memories. It’s been real. However, it’s time you move on and move out so I, along with so many other people, can begin rebuilding our life. In other words…let’s just “Kiss And Say Goodbye”. Of course a pretend kiss might be best since you’re pretty darn contagious. Oh….On a final not, COVID…..can you take some of those “Negative Nancy” know it all but know nothing politicians with you? They’re just as draining and toxic as you are. I’m totally spent!!! Anyway…..Thanks a bunch. ❤️❤️

Sincerely,

Velma D
