January 2020 I was going on road trips and doing something outdoors every weekend without a mask. And in the background, I hear some noise about some virus spreading in China. Didn't really give a shit about it. :dunno:

I think I was watching pirated videos on OT of Chinese people dying on the streets and wondering what the hell was happening in China and hoping they'd get it under control before it ended up in neighboring countries.

I don't think I was doing anything in January/Feb last year. I do remember my friend in China/Hong Kong was giving me first hand counts of shit going on with the China Virus.

Probably working but in the office instead of from home, more than likely there would have been a bbq/house party with friends this weekend.

I had started stacking up on masks and more TP, bottled water and canned food.

Everyone was ragging on me in my family - as they know I'm already a nutjob but I was taking it to the next level.

Even MDs and RNs in my family were laughing....

If I'm being honest, I would've laughed at you too. :o

We were in Hawaii for two weeks, acting like this wasn't a huge deal because there were no cases there or back in Winnipeg to speak of. As soon as we got home, our PM called for everyone to return to Canada that Sunday.

Exactly today, I was having lunch at my favorite restaurant in Santa Monica after I just signed a lease on my new retail space on 3rd street, joking with my friend that I’ll never go back to my warehouse again

Same thing. Sitting at my desk at home, working, browsing OT. Except I lived in Ohio.

Getting ready to go to an annual business trip to plan for the year. That nuked shortly after and I’m surprised I kept my job.
