I'd be careful with b. You might not be a virus factory, but you can still transport and shed it (heard on BBC).

I meant that practically everyone can deliver it to you. They recommend the vulnerable ones to self isolate.
Life has slowed down.

42 degrees F and was snowing this morning around here.

LL Bean barn jacket, wool sweater, jeans, and duck boots were the appropriate attire.

But that's being practical and conservative. (and perhaps boring!)

I imagine most of the southern US is imbibing in the military trends. 

Bandoliers, water proof steel toed boots, ghillie suits, picatinny rails, night vision, and a pack of lucky strikes.

Good eye!

This morning, I was at a small liquor store getting a bottle of Courvoisier and had a nice chat with two delivery men who were waiting for the store owner inside.  

They were clearly Bikers - long beards and tattoos, so I mentioned - great time to have a motorcycle and head up to Vermont....

Immediate agreement on that and a very pleasant talk about motorcycles and various highways and byways in the region.  

(If I'd had a crafty and fit accomplice, he could have raided the large beer truck, meanwhile, and loaded the cases into my black 4-Runner...) hehe

Zinc, multi vitamins, probiotics. Tablets for prostate, ED, hot flushes and PMS. And puberty blockers. What am I missing?

Paracetamol.

Chocolate and a cat compress are best for PMS. Cat compress can be substituted with human hugging, but it isn't as effective.

Well the REAL drugs for one. 

What's there to do but spend a vacation from the world in the fashion of Hunter S. Thompson.

Your flatmate. Or are you playing "Here's Jonny!" with her?
