Human beings are naturally social creatures. It is in our DNA. Some of us more so than others. I am most definitely a very social person and always have been. I am a free spirit and I hate to be couped up and caged in. These days, with all the lockdowns in place, I am definitely feeling very caged in. But because we can’t go anywhere at the moment, we have to find other ways of socializing and connecting. More so than ever, the internet has become our lifelines to the rest of the world. I never thought I would appreciate the internet as much as I currently do, but thank God for the internet.
We have now successfully enjoyed our second Virtual Happy Hour with our friends Janet and Bob and their daughter Jeanette and her husband Derek. This time, not only did we “get together” over drinks, but we added a couple of friendly games of Farkle to the party as well.
All we need for some Moscow Mermaids, a variation of Moscow Mules.
Drinks – check; snacks – check; SKYPE connections – check; dice – check. We’re ready. Let’s let the games begin.
Obviously it is much better to get together face-to-face, but SKYPE is the next best thing. We all managed to have a good time. Times may be tough at the moment, but we’re not going to let them get the best of us.
Hang in there everyone. This too shall pass. In the meantime, stay safe and stay well.
