Monkey brains love puzzles, love problems to solve.
Not enough gloves? Well sure, they are disposable and so many people need them now. Face masks? Same thing. Everybody needs them, and not enough to go around. And ventilators, I don’t know about them except that we need more.
Shortages, bare shelves, no supply. All problems for my monkey brain to solve.
What finally hit me was a cousin of my wife has a daughter who is an ER nurse
in a big city, and they ran out of body bags.
That’s not a shortage, that’s an excess. An excess of bodies, an excess death, an
excess of people slipping away. Too many people dead, too many people gone.
My monkey brain does not see the solution as getting more bags.
