My daughter who lives in NY works at a big company in the city. Back in March or so they closed up the offices and sent everyone home to work. It was a dream come true for a lot of people. How nice not to have to commute, how nice to walk around in your slippers all morning. Take the dog for a walk during a break etc. I know some people have little kids at home and so that has been a challenge but if you don't it's heaven. Well a month ago her office decided they wanted everyone to come into the office one or two days a week. We are in October now, just on the brink of this virus rearing it's ugly head again. So begrudgingly people started showing up on their designated day. My daughter quickly determined that she was getting more done from home than at the office. Also, it cost her $100 to drive in and back not to mention the 2 1\2 hours commuting time. The next week she took the train, better. After the third week there started surfacing reports that people were getting Covid. Each week one more and then one more. Needless to say that by the end of October it was mandated that people stay home to work, AHHHHHHHHH.
You know what else has been reported? Pregnancies. Since Covid lock down with work from home orders, women have been getting pregnant in droves. They are calling them Covid babies. We were called Baby Boomers, then we had generation Xs, then Generation Ys, then Millenials etc. Well now we are having the Covid babies. Not sure if that includes babies "conceived" before February 2020 but there is definitely going to be a new label, a new generation. Maybe they'll be able to figure out this crazy world. They will have survived a pandemic, what else could be worse? Covid deaths? yep
