Did the same thing with my parents yesterday. Brought our own chairs, sat in their back garden, and chatted for a couple of hours. It's the most I've gotten to see them in two months.

And was surprisingly exhausting. My mind is so constantly "scanning for threats" and second-guessing everything I am doing, to make sure I am not going to be the vector that infects my 73 and 83-year old parents, that everything I do or think is using an extraordinary amount of processing power.

On the plus side, I got to drive by kleinbl00's birth center and wave at the empty building, and admire his artistry on his big electronic signboard thingie. So there's that. :-)
