No worries, weedski. I sympathize with your frustration. I am fully vaccinated, socially distanced for a very long time, and still don’t do things like eat or drink inside of a restaurant or cafe (will do so on a patio or outdoor dining area - though with delta that may change). I am uninterested in suffering socially and possibly financially due to those who have access and the health to get a vaccine, but choose not to do so. And that is where I see the future heading regardless of my decisions. So may as well get some enjoyment - that said, I’m not going to Vegas.

Yeah, that's almost exactly where I'm at with things too. Only difference is that I've eaten a meal inside a restaurant perhaps three or four times in the last two months. Those are the only times I'm maskless inside. Ever.

I also agree with your projection of October-ish being about when I expect cases to get high enough that I'll opt to curb my behavior, regardless of whatever restrictions are issued. As always, I'll be watching national, state, and county-level cases per capita.

If I get it, of course I don't expect to fall seriously ill, it's just that I reeeeeeally don't want to be a vector of spread.
