Pandemic and An Octogenarian's Golf Perspective
It looks like we are at the peak of Pandemic's wastage
of human lives coinciding with the climax of Trump's
wanton destruction of American democracy,
with a single day of his presidency fairly matching a single day
of Pandemic's fear.
Throughout the Pandemic, golf courses have been crowded
as Americans try to forget all these happenings just for a while
hoping and praying they will get their turns for vaccination in time,
and they will see Trump go down real hard soon.
I'm lucky to have a lifetime golf partner, my wife, so that
we do our best to go out to play, anywhere from a few holes to
no more than 9 holes.
The trouble is that almost always strangers want to join us, and
those strangers are usually much younger than us, not wearing masks.
Yesterday afternoon luckily we played with a retired MD infection specialist
who showed up with a mask on, who informed me that one player he played with
the day before came down with COVID19 today.
That guy wasn't wearing a mask, said he.
At my club, a dozen golfers or members are said to have come down with the virus.
To be honest, I find the golfing turns out to be the only effective antidote
against Pandemic and Donald Trump.
Unfortunately, Donald Trump found out a similar secret, i.e.
the golf game for him is the only antidote for his oppositions
and provides him quiet time for his ingenious scheming.
No wonder he was playing golf while millions of Americans crying for help.
NYTimes said, "Nero plays fiddle. Trump plays golf."
Nevertheless to this octogenarian, playing golf has become
an essential part of the survival game in this crisis that is perpetuating
for the longest time in our lifetimes.
No longer bad shots, bad score, or missing short putts upsets his soul.
Making one or two pars in the course of 9 holes brings to me
the greatest feeling of accomplishment, now and then.
One thing I do regularly, though, is wearing a pedometer
just to remind me to walk as much as I can instead of
sitting in my cart.
According to one latest study, a senior like me needs to walk 7500 steps a day, not 10,000,
which made me happy
because I'm lazy as I became an octogenarian 5 months ago,
