CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC - End of Day 7 Social Distancing! I’m still surviving, wow a week, 24 hours multiplied by 7, too full to go find my calculator. If anyone is out there, please send a message or a bottle filled with tequila (no need for notes). Pantry is still almost full except for chip section and peanut butter shelves! New recipes going well with chips and peanut butter as main dish, sure I’ll have my first cook book soon. Bad news with my hamster, yes, as in singular. Who knew that feeding them BBQ sauce on their little meals would be life threatening? (I was just trying to marinate them from the inside in case no other food alternatives left). I now have one that is walking on the little wheel that goes round and round (I guess he - Donald had more of a will to live than the other, weaker one) the one of whom I referred to as Daisy; she is frozen in my new deep freeze which my soon-to-be girlfriend Amazon delivered (you'll hear more about her later). It is a shiny white color with a full lid cover, just like the ones you see in the gangster movies of where the bad guy chops up one of his partners because something happened that he didn’t quite agree with. I have made contact with a couple different people, one is a male who wears a brown matching outfit with short pants and has the letters UPS on his truck of which also matches his charming outfit. The other is slowly becoming my best friend – I call her Amazon Woman as she is quite strong and delivers to my door usually three to four times a week. If she’d let me get closer than six feet, I believe that there could be chemistry, but I have all the time in the world to just pine and wait. My ammo is down to 2435 rounds as on day three I lost a round doing inventory as it rolled into the heat vent. I have used 64 rounds target practicing with three different weapons in my backyard. My neighborhood is more alive now than I first thought, as some neighbors who had unsuccessfully attempted suicide come out to see what the noise is about, but are quite nice and go back into their habitat as I politely, safely wave at them with gun in hand. Hand washing is getting to me, having nightmares of never-ending soap operas (just kidding, I wanted to make a joke, get it soap operas – hand washing?) But, seriously my skin from the tips of my fingers to just above my wrists are dry and cracking more than my knuckles. At night I lie in fear of what the coming days will bring as I know that summer is just around the corner and comes with it the heat. Many thoughts run through this pretty head of mine: What if my air conditioner breaks down? What if my pool boy decides he wants to stay and quarantine? What if I run out of margarita mix? What if I never get to see Amazon woman again? What if 768 rolls of toilet paper are not enough? What would I look like in a bra? Where can I find a chicken to lay eggs? What do I feed a chicken? Can a hamster and chicken live in the same cage? Will my hamster shit on the egg before I can retrieve it from the cage. So many things to think about as I shoot my guns and inventory my rounds of ammo. Yes, this social distancing has taken a toll on my mind, but my body remains strong; well bigger as I am relentless on staying healthy and have gained an amazing 14 pounds in 7 days. Getting a bit worried though of if I can do sit ups when I decide to start after 60 days of social distancing. Still would like a flare sent or to be flashed in a private message. I am no longer particular on it being only female as stated on day three of no males, please. I just need to feel needed. Stay Safe & Healthy out there! In case you don't remember what happened on Day 3; I have posted it below! Rico Austin PhD Peace, Love & Tequila!!!,
