Your View: What’s The First Thing You’ll Do After Lockdown?
Daily the rate of infections from the coronavirus are reducing in number and more information is emerging about the true statistical dangers and benefits (or not) of lockdowns. Today, New Zealand’s government will drop the severity of the current lockdown to allow a much greater number of businesses to re-open and to allow the restoration of more freedom for those it serves: the people.
As a consequence of both of these things, I am removing the primary focus from the front page of Listverse away from Coronavirus and back to regular editor’s picks of lists (this really only affects readers of the desktop site). As I was looking over the various lists for today’s editor’s picks I thought it might be a nice idea for us to all share with each the things we most miss and the first thing we will do when our own freedom is restored.
I’ll go first: the thing I have missed the most is morning coffee at my local Café Chocolate Dayz in Days Bay, Wellington. I make excellent coffee at home so I am not entirely without the stuff, but I miss the chats and the coffee skills of the baristas at my local. So the first thing I will do when I am finally out of lockdown is go to the café and have two long blacks with pouring cream and a plate of Bacon Hash, poached eggs on a hash brown with maple syrup drizzled bacon, mushrooms, and hollandaise sauce. It’s nearly keto and it’s awesome.
Now your turn: what are you going to do once this is all over?
