Passing the time in this Covid present

Dear Sir,

Well, it ain't over til it's over! We're going to have to live with restrictions for a while yet. It is what it is, so there's no choice but to obey the laws of Covid.

Let's take golf, for instance. Unless you play with a member of your household, you have to play one person to a tee time. So you're all alone out there.

If you have a bad shot, no one will know. If you want to give yourself a mulligan, go ahead! You can have a “gimme” putt on every hole if you want.

There are handicaps to golf as long as we are not allowed to mix households (File photograph)

The downside is that if you have a hole-in-one, no one will witness it. Bummer!

Now for some domestic excitement.

Grocery shopping has become a whole new experience. You parade to your car, shopping bags in hand, relishing in the knowledge that you can go today but your neighbour can't go until tomorrow.

Taking out the garbage brings new athletic opportunities. You can throw it into the bin with an underhand shot, overhand, or a curve ball. If you get it in from a good distance, give yourself three points!

Let's do what we have to and the time will pass. We'll get back to more normal days for sure. Does anyone remember what normal is?

Stay well everyone and get vaccinated.
