WOD & JusJoJan 1-16-22 Ridiculous Restrictions

I want to attend church in person. I want to sing in the choir. I want to join the new pickleball team. But not wearing a mask.


Your prompt for JusJoJan January 16th, 2022, is “ridiculous.” Use the word “ridiculous” any way you’d like. Have fun!

There are some places that the ridiculous restriction cannot be fought, like your doctor’s office and, at those times, I just have to suck it up and comply. You simply won’t be seen if you don’t. But with church, I have the choice to view online, so that is what I choose to do until the restriction is lifted.

You have to see now that masks in this instance have not prevented or fixed a thing, any more than the vaccines have. Many people who do both have still gotten sick.

Masks work for instances like cleaning up biohazardous materials and preventing blood from getting in your mouth during a surgery. Not once during this whole pandemic have I believed that making us wear a mask prevented anyone from getting the virus or that it makes any sense, especially in places where people are gathered and sitting close to each other…like the choir at church. It infuriates me that they have to sing with masks on. In my opinion, we comply because we are a bunch of sheep, scared (still) into doing what the government, Dr Fauci, and the CDC swears will work.

Has anyone seen the new comedy Don’t Look Up? It’s a great example and spot on in my humble opinion of just how ridiculous all of this has been to me. Check it out and let me know your thoughts. (on the movie, not on wearing or not wearing masks 😉)

Have a blessed Sunday everyone! Stay warm and say a pray for the island of Tonga.
