ALL THAT ZAZZ
By Mary N. DiZazzo
COVID-19 ... Leaving the Mask Behind!
Actually people were happy to see me out scootering around. Not everyone wore their mask outside. In fact several ladies in the North End on separate occasions recognized me as the Post Gazette Beauty columnist which was quite flattering. I semi wear my mask in the new, huge Star Market in North Station, just a few blocks from my home. I could do donuts in the aisles, the store is so big and only a few people at a time. Fun and easy.
I must say I miss the faces of people, especially the delivery guys! Oh the Beauty there is truly missed.
At least we’re stocked up on toilet paper. Not that we bought out the whole store of it like the suburbanites. God help us!
In the months of quarantine I kept thinking of Anne Frank. Her and her family with boarders lived in close quarters for years without going outside. I guess you’ll do anything to save your life. Same here.
During the quarantine months we did keep busy. Lots of reading, TV series including Tiger King which was perfect for quarantine, hilarity at its finest, coloring books galore, and lots of cooking and safely ordering out. We certainly dined well..
There was a certain positive idea of catching up at home. I feel my relationship with my husband has grown stronger. Ahhh...the silver lining!
Spoke to long time friends that reconnected. From Sicily to Los Angeles to New York...all friends checked in...mostly all was well.
A few friends survived the virus, however, lost a favorite cousin to it in July. It was heart breaking.
So as the world opens up we face the monster and we live our best life.
Get up, make up, healthy thoughts, and Smile, Smile Big!
Buona Giornata and God Bless the USA!
