On the first Sunday morning of the new year, I was going to church with my family.
Right away we seemed to run into trouble. When we got there, the church building was shuttered and the parking lot empty. Apparently, the service was online only that day. You know, because of COVID.
So we put plan B into action: Let’s go out to lunch together!
Unfortunately, due to a Emergency General Order issued by the command of our local Army post, my husband (as an active duty soldier) is not allowed to eat inside restaurants. You know, because of COVID.
He can, however, eat on a patio, if the restaurant offers uncovered outdoor seating.
Which is how we ended up sitting next to a busy road outside the local pizza joint today, freezing to death.
Because, OF COURSE, no one had brought a jacket to church. Except my husband. Who, as an Eagle Scout, is ALWAYS prepared.
Anyways, so we enjoyed a lovely lunch al fresco.
You know, because of COVID.
Happy New Year, everyone!
