How to Deal With the Coming Crisis

Published Mar 16, 2020 · 776 words (3 minutes) · 293 views

Fantasy Satire superstitions pandemic worry

This story was written during an earlier, and much less dangerous, pandemic. The ideas underlying it are far too relevant. It's based on my personal superstition that if I worry about something it won't happen. That is, of course, ridiculous, but the fact that I know that doesn't keep me from worrying and hoping that worrying will be enough. Stay home if you can, wash your hands, and keep your distance if you must go outside.
