Fond memories of a time in March. Slight panick has arisen in the supermarkets. It was Friday 13th of March. In the morning my supplies were running low. It was 8:30am, the Aldi was opening up. There was already a line of people who had to buy stuff. Panick is infectious: once you see other people hoarding, you ask yourself « Should I prepare myself? ». In a rush of nervousness I have bought a bag of potatoes and a bag of onions. Storable food. I patted myself on the back: a smart move. « Just in case ». Foolish me: I forgot to buy toilet paper. Out of sheer paranoia, I have filled a soup pot full of water, in case the tab water runs dry. Up to this day, this backup water is still available.
On a bright side: streets were empty, highways sounded silent and the world kept on turning in the safety of my flat. I know: a luxury, some people are not so fortunate.
