My date Wednesday went really well! We split after eating and reconvened later for a dance party at a local park. It was wonderful until the DJ let us know that to wrap up his set he was going to play an original, and it turned out to be Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" speech remixed into a house track. When "free at last!" led into the drop and the DJ picked up the mic and told us we were all keeping the dream alive I started laughing so hard my abs cramped up. I immediately let my date know we had to leave because there's no way I'm ending up on some Instagram story in that context.

We made plans to grab coffee next week but we both ended up with covid, which it turns out really sucks. Now I'm quarantining and trying not to infect my housemate, but that might be a lost cause. Fortunately I got my fourth shot a month ago so it more or less just feels like a bad cold. My strategy of eating kratom to kill the cough and malaise has worked pretty well so far, and I ordered a few pints of ice cream so it's not a terrible weekend. I just wish I could leave the house.
