I feel that. I have to wonder if, for those who feel like they only have a

few good years left, the idea of just sitting at home for the best one of those few years is just too much to bear. Look, if you think it's 50-50 that you'll even see Christmas 2021, do you really take so much precaution that you sit out Christmas 2020? It's a tough call for a lot of these folks.

My parents have said a lot of their friends at church are throwing up their hands, and saying things like they're not gonna waste an entire one of their last 3 or 4 good years sitting at home because of the 10% chance this thing kills them. To be honest, I can't really beef on them. It's their call to make.

Still, I wouldn't be dining indoors and some of the other crap I see seniors up to out there. I'm definitely in your camp there. I'd be taking trips to National Parks and other stuff I could do outside and away from people. But, I won't hate.
