Well we are in the middle of it here in California. Tubularsock received an EMERGENCY TEXT on Tubularsock’s old flip phone with a screen the size of a postage stamp which read that Tubularsock was under an emergency stay at home order.

As you may recall Tubularsock lives on the top floor with a corner office in an underground bunker overlooking Washington, D.C. from Oakland, CA. (see Bunker Tour).

Now we have been in this situation before and Tubularsock because Tubularsock is in the essential service of political blogging Tubularsock believes Tubularsock can do as he wishes and does.

But while free floating Tubularsock wears a mask which many have said that Tubularsock looks better with a mask than without and Tubularsock does an 8’ social distance because why not? Tubularsock doesn’t like people that much anyway.

Several friends chastise Tubularsock for believing in the mask and social distancing but Tubularsock seldom worries what others think of him with a very solid view of FUCK YOU to go along with it.

Now it is not that Tubularsock believes in these tactics but it is because Tubularsock has learned the hard way that if one believes one can poke a bear in the eye because it appears to be sleeping perhaps one should heed the advice and not do that.

The Corona is difficult enough to get along with why poke it?

And Tubularsock is a big believer of YOU doing what you wish just stay away from Tubularsock while you do it.

Alas, this diatribe ends with more pressing thoughts on Tubularsock’s mind. But using Tubularsock’s ability of the ancient cave dwellers pictographic abilities Tubularsock has created a small series of pictographs to summarize for non-readers current topics of interest.

And besides, it saves letters for use in later manuscripts where a larger variety of the alphabet can be used. Don’t thank Tubularsock yet.

    Terrible to be a pawn. At least a Knight has more interesting moves.

  2. What you say about pawns, Tube, isn’t strictly true. If a player’s pawn reaches the other side of the chess board, it can be converted into any other piece except a king:

      Well DrB, it has been years since Tubularsock has sat in front of a chess board and you are correct that a pawn does have somewhat of a chance to do as you explain.

      But for Tubularsock that is like saying a homeless bum if he fell over a wheelbarrow of cash could be able to become anything he wishes.

      Maybe yes, maybe no.

      Tubularsock might be able to get his pawn to the “other side” and decide to stay a pawn.

      Check, DrB.

    I find it very strange that people are “chastised” at all for wearing masks and not attending raves or monster rallies right now.

    Someone wearing a mask and social distancing isn’t affecting their life one way or another. Why do they need to comment on it? I don’t think they’ve ever heard the expression, “Trust in Allah, but tie your camel.”

    One doesn’t have to be a sheep to understand that statement fully and deeply and still, in the end, remain a free thinker.

      Tubularsock agrees with you here SB. It has always been interesting to Tubularsock why if one is doing their own thing others have to get in their face about it.

      Tubularsock has always believed that if you don’t like somebody’s actions (if they aren’t hurting you) then stay out of their business.

      And not to be disrespectful to anyone but Tubularsock heard that Allah smokes Camels but like Tubularsock says, “Not my issue”.

      Thanks for your comment and have a merry and a happy.

    Well Tube, I agree about the muzzle-wearing thing — if a person (actually me) wears one every time s/he goes out and has been covid-free all these months then it just makes sense to take that easy step. Besides, muzzle-wearing has become my latest clothing style — I have plaid ones, Monet ones, banned book ones, and a monarch butterfly one (I wear that one when I carry my monarch butterfly purse 🤗!
    It seems to wolfess (me) that wearing a muzzle is kind of like having a gun — better to have one and not need it, than need one and not have it! 🤔😎

      When it all becomes a fashion statement we know it is just a passing fad. Next we’ll have Lady Gaga Hazmat suits with gold sprinkles. So fashionable. Don’t you think?

      Tubularsock is out right now looking for a butterfly purse to carry the AK47.

      Stay safe and eat your organic vegetables.
