Paul Castronovo Musings: Things That I’ve Learned During The Pandemic

Things that I’ve learned during the pandemic:

Masks below your nose don’t work!

Oh My God! From Fast food workers, to the security guard at my Mom’s complex, the “pull the mask down past your nostrils” routine has become a Florida pastime and It makes me insane!

If you’re in your 20’s and you’re a guy, you might be a bit risky:

Ya think? Sorry, I have a 20 year old, and I have been like a parental Nazi trying to keep him quarantined, but man, his buddies and contemporaries? They are out and about and ready to spread the Covid. Oh, and I didn’t make it up, there was a study that said, that group was the most risky. So, there!

News reporters are covidiots too:

I watch news reporters doing stories about people “not wearing masks in public” that aren’t wearing masks in public, and it’s one thing to be outside in a park…it’s another to be 5 feet from someone eating a bagel! Stop it!

I can’t breathe out of masks:

Yeah, I wear a mask into a store and I’m good for about 10 minutes before I need oxygen, how do Doctors do 8 hours of surgery? Granted, the KN95 masks are tougher breathe out of than the cloth surgery masks, but what I have found is that the “buff” that us fisherman wear to keep protected from the sun, works for me…I don’t know if it is safe or not, but damn I look cool in one.

You don’t have to get paper towels from Publix or Costco or any other large chain:

Yeah, apparently Ace Hardware (at least the one by me in Deerfield Beach) as everything! Lysol, TP, Paper Towels, wipes (if you are lucky), masks, alcohol, hand sanitizer, etc. Ace: It’s not just for tools.

I’m a pretty damn good cook:

I always knew I was good, but recently, I have become, dare I say, “outstanding”.

I’ve been catching a lot of Tuna, so in the last week it’s been Tuna Poke, Tuna Burgers, and Tuna Puttanesca…and my homemade pizza!
