#2 Coronavirus

Taking advantage of disadvantages

In the book Homo Deus, Yuval Harari mentions terrorists are like a fly wanting to destroy a China shop. Being too weak by itself, it goes inside of a cow and starts buzzing so that the cow, fearful and angry, will destroy the shop.

Now, that fly landed at one of the most ‘worriors’ I know: my mom-in-law. I was asked not to go outside over the weekend because of Coronavirus. The only caveat is it is a long weekend over President’s day. It gave me a golden opportunity to take kids somewhere and do special outdoor activities. Instead, I arranged ‘three’ play dates at my home.

Luckily those play dates eventually led fun & memorable communal cooking and eating with kids’ moms. Speaking of taking ‘best’ out of bad situations.
