I want buffalo wings too.
But I stay home.
I want to get my haircut too.
But I stay home.
I want to go to the beach, swim, take my son to a baseball game.
But I stay home.
I want to take my bride out to a nice restaurant, have a drink at a fun bar, go dancing.
But I stay home.
I want to work and get paid too.
But I stay home.
I want to see my family.
But I stay home.
I want to do all the things we used to do.
But I stay home.
Not for me.
Because I want to flatten the curve.
I want to keep me and mine healthy, so we don’t get others sick.
I want to not require testing, so it can be saved for those who really need it. Because there aren’t enough.
I want to stay out of the hospitals, to give the overworked – overstressed – overtired – over IT heroes a break from one more person ignoring the warnings.
I want to see you.
Healthy.
Safe.
In your home. Not in a hospital.
Laughing. Not on a ventilator.
Having a drink. Not fed through a tube.
So I stay home.
