Got a call from an old friend, we used to be real close, and it wasn’t a Billy Joel song.
After talking about his startup he asked about the family and whether we were vaccinated.
I don’t know his politics. I know his belief structure is “odd” in general.
I was worried. I don’t think that I have ever felt this worried before from being asked a question. It felt like Trump v Clint or Trump v Biden but much more fraught.
I felt like I might be at risk of losing a friend of 35 years, if I were to say, “Yes, gravity points downward.”
Until that call, I didn’t understand just how bad things had gotten. I literally shake when I think about it.
