i told myself that i wasn’t gonna become “one of those people”.
someone who is looking down on friends because they choose not be get jabbed.
as someone who lost one of his best friends so suddenly,
i overly-care about the people i’ve labeled “friends”.
Not to be confused the assholes who have left my life because they were terrible friends.
the ones who shouldn’t even have friends because they fumble the bag consistently.
i’m referring to the genuine friends that are in my tribe.
i know we won’t agree on everything,
but i knew the “jabbed vs un-jabbed” life we are living would make us take sides.
so one of my best friends is anti-jabber.
she agrees with the conspiracies and all of that.
she sent me that she was at a rally over the covid mandates in new yawk.
they are banning the un-jabbed from gyms,
and concerts starting next week.
you know folks out here are angry…
…and she was out there without a mask on.
i felt this sense of dread come over me.
i asked her if she was masked up and she told me that she hasn’t worn a mask in months.
she won’t wear one if it’s not required which is outside.
i got really scared by that statement for some reason.
i don’t know if it’s because i’m almost fully jabbed,
but i guess the reality of this current state of the world.
the delta has been tearing through these forests and bringing folks down.
although i got my first shot,
i still don’t do crowds as of yet.
crowds of folks who i don’t know if they’re being reckless about their own health.
there are jabbed and un-jabbed folks who are asymptomatic that don’t even know.
that is all risky.
i know we are all grown out here.
we are free to make our own decisions and our friends and family will too.
i want people to make the right decisions about their health during this pandemic.
if you choose not to get jabbed then it’s whatever,
but don’t put yourself in the middle of situations that could end wrong for you.
it might be the cancerian in me who cares too much tho.
please be careful out there.
lowkey: i’ve always been the cool outsider so i’m always judging everyone.
it’s a fun space to be when you aren’t following crowds,
but who knew i’d be judging friends too?
