Scaredy Cat

Monday, March 2, 2020

D calls me a scaredy cat. But with everything that’s happening nowadays, I have every reason to be scared.  I’m scared of catching the flu before our trip. Authorities might mistake my symptoms as those of COVID-19 and bar me from my flight; I’m scared of catching the virus at the airport, inside the plane, or during the layover. I’m not traveling to China, South Korea, Italy, or Iran so my chances of contracting the virus is slim, but still; I’m scared that D, coming from the US, might get it, although the chances of it are even slimmer; I’m scared that a contagion might explode in the places we’ll go to; I’m scared of everything bad that might happen, yet we’re pushing through with our trip for no virus can stop us from seeing each other and being together.
