the test

D and I got our Covid-19 testing done earlier at the CVS drive-thru near out house. It was a weird experience. They pass you a nasal swab kit through the drawer and you administer the test yourself. You have to put it straight back about an inch and then twirl it around for 15 seconds – then repeat on the other side. It’s unpleasant. My nose bled a bit, and is sore now. Then you package it up, wipe off the container, place the package inside, and wipe off the container again. It was a weird experience.

I’m feeling mostly the same as I have been. D is feeling pretty shitty. He’s relaxing right now. I’m still working. Business owners don’t really get sick days. Sigh.

We should have the results in two to four days. We already told Matt & Jen about it – so they know to be careful and watch for symptoms. The kids are staying here with us until we know the results – which isn’t much of a schedule change since we were already scheduled to have them this weekend.

In other news, due to this turn of events, we used Shipt for the first time this afternoon, and I am really impressed. I may never go to the grocery store again. I fucking HATE the grocery store – especially nowadays.

One thought on “the test

  1. I’ve become the weirdest afficionado of delivery services. Never used them before (short of pizza). Now, I get groceries delivered (Amazon Pantry is decent if Schnucks isn’t covering everything). Drizly does the booze. DoorDash for takeout with occasional GrubHub. There’s something to be said for it coming to your door. I miss the spontaneity of just deciding what you want to cook tonight based on what you find at the store… but in this context delivery at least feels a lot safer.
