Thank god it is 2020

Last night, I had a virtual happy hour with my two best friends. These virtual meet ups, with people near and far, have been happening a lot in our house due to the current corona situation.

It got me thinking… why haven’t we been doing this more with people who we don’t live near? Why did it take an international pandemic for us to start this? It has definitely shifted my thinking moving forward, and I imagine a lot of people will be doing more virtual hangouts with people they love when this all blows over.

The hour that I spent with these two was the highlight of my day. We toasted, laughed, caught up, and shared. We commiserated in our current state, and we talked about other life happenings.  It was everything I needed and more. Most importantly, I got to see their faces. I got to feel like we were in the same room, just being.

So thank you Zoom, thank you Facetime, thank you Google Hangouts….. and thank god Covid-19 did not surface in the 1990s.

  1. That’s the truth!! This would have been a lot more isolating years ago. All those smiles show that you made a lot of people happy.

  2. Agreed! A very good friend and I have not seen each other in 2 1/2 years, I think, yet “met up” in an online book club this week and as a result had a nice, long Zoom chat today! Why did it take so long?
