My son put a new lock on the front door. “It’s to keep us all safe, Dad,” he said.
But he can’t fool me. I know he did it to keep me imprisoned in the house. Just because I went out to get the mail yesterday, took a short stroll, and had a little trouble finding my way home. That could happen to anyone, right? And my nephew found me and gave me a ride home, so what’s the big deal?
So maybe I’ve gotten a little forgetful. Well…maybe a lot forgetful.
Now, Doctor, what were we talking about again?
True, and scary at the same time.
Excellent!! Big delema between care and freedom!!!
Well written example of the new “normal.”
Timely and realistic for so many of us. Thank you.

Sounds vaguely familiar! Good one.

So many tough choices.
Good choice of examples to show the commonality of this issue. So many of us can relate.

I love the way you illustrated the whole event in so few words. Good job!
Nicely done, but I’m pretty sure a lock like this would be illegal (fire codes). But narrator isn’t reliable.
