​“I’m reliving the same day over and over.”

A few months, then things will get back to normal.  No? Ok… a few more. Nope. Still not.  Mandatory what? WHAT DO YOU MEAN CHRISTMAS IS CANCELLED! 2020 quickly gave us some serious empathy for Bill Murray’s character in Groundhog Day.  Mondays, Thursdays, Sundays… it was all the same.
