re: What are your doctor friends saying about Covid? - HouseMom
Well, I do enjoy an echo chamber with a healthy side of confirmation bias. Why on earth do you think I'm here? To be fair, the point of my post was that there is no need to politicize an illness. I'm just looking for what others have learned from their personal experiences conversing with those ...

re: What are your doctor friends saying about Covid? - HouseMom
Ha ha, I'm most definitely not a troll. I'm a long time lurker who finally decided to chime in. I became hooked on the OT when the Dallas police shootout was happening. Y'all were breaking the story in real time, and Fox was delayed by several minutes, if not more. I even learned about the rona on h...

What are your doctor friends saying about Covid? - HouseMom
We all have opinions on Dr. Fauci, the doctors' press conference in D.C., etc., but what are your own experiences? Are you personally in the medical field? Are you close friends with people in the know? We have several friends who have treated Covid patients. The general consensus is that unless...

re: Louisiana COVID-19 - July 20, 2020 Update: 94,892 cases - 3,462 deaths - 1,102,924 tested - HouseMom
Serious question...How are YOU handling the N/A in the list? I understand your assumption that it can't realistically be zero, but the state tells us they will just include it the next day. Either way, you still need a zero as a place holder to make 7 days. The day doesn't just disappear. Or, just d...

re: What words do people say that make you immediately dislike them? - HouseMom
I don't disagree with this, but holding on to obscure meanings of words may be confusing to the person consuming a modern communication. After all, the sole purpose of words is to convey a thought from human to human. That is NOT to say that you shouldn't keep these words alive and out there. I don'...

re: What words do people say that make you immediately dislike them? - HouseMom
Not trying to argue the original meaning of decimate, but it's commonly used now to refer to something being destroyed. I've never used it to mean a reduction by a tenth. This is a denotation vs. connotation issue, and I would argue that "destroy" is the more common version now. Language does evolve...

re: if you get tested/test negative for Covid, are/will you quarantine for 14 days? - HouseMom
So here's the thing. What's "sensible" to you, seems ludicrous to others. I'm a pretty risk-averse person, and no way on the planet would I even put my life on hold for 2 weeks after testing negative for any illness. It would be hiding from something that is extremely unlikely to even exist. ...

re: Karen having ‘panic attacks’ every 4th.... - HouseMom
A felony? Woah. Some of my greatest childhood memories are of family 4th of July celebrations and, of course, popping fireworks. It's part of the American childhood checklist to write your name with a sparkler and fire off some bottle rockets. There is nothing more American than fireworks to celebra...

re: Schools should open October 1st - HouseMom
This. In retrospect, we should have allowed the schools to remain open and only immune compromised kids should have participated in distance learning. Allowing this thing to burn through the younger population would have us much closer to herd immunity. I'm not sure what the answer is, but we ha...

re: Best place for tennis in BR? - HouseMom
BREC has some great beginner groups. I recommend taking a few private lessons first just so you're not a complete novice when you start group lessons. That's certainly not required. I have no idea about the Y, so I can't help there. Also, you're going to need to play a LOT of singles tennis to l...
