A message for staff working in shops and stores

Thanks for being there for us!

That said, can you please take into account that those who are stuck indoors non-stop, often with a very limited choice of food, may not be looking our absolute best right now, esthetically speaking, but that it does not mean anything other than that we are stuck inside our homes non-stop, aren’t getting much daylight and aren’t getting our regular fresh veggies and all that right now?

We aren’t exactly tanning on the beach.

When we weren’t on lockdown yet, the stores were pretty damn empty, remember? So a lot of us are currently getting by on, well, snacks and bits of this and that and we’re getting almost no sunshine and little exercise.

I have a feeling that this may come up increasingly often over the next, eh, two months or so.

I can look in the mirror and see it, so if I see it, you can see it too.

My skin seems to be getting drier or something, but it notably seems to be getting paler. It’s subtle, but these subtle things sometimes speak loudly.

And if I can see something in my face when I look in the mirror, knowing that I am not the only one in this situation, then I also know that I am not the only one who this is happening to.

But it’s not us, it’s nothing to do with us, with who we are or how well or unwell we are. Okay?

Thank you.

I’ll do my best too and I’ll probably start running up and down my bit of staircase soon to stay fit. Social distancing maintained!

PS
Can we please have free tanning beds installed? I am sure that that would help.

Speaking of which. people, keep up your vitamin D levels. Good for your immune system too. Not getting much daylight means that we’re making less vitamin D from sunlight right now.
