After a long day as the External Affairs Officer, I noticed that there is a significant amount of gloves and masks scattered on the sidewalks throughout the city.
C’mon now – this is why we can’t have nice things!
Look, I am proud that you opted to wear a mask, but please dispose of them when you are done. By being responsible, we can continue the decrease in spreading Coronavirus. Simple ask huh?
But as I made the turn to the front door, I noticed a bunch of bubbles in the air.
I had to take a deep breath as this little 60-second break was sooo nice. My phone didn’t ring, no checking social media….nothing. Just me and some bubbles floating around on a nice clear day.
During these stressful times, it’s important to take a few moments to reflect and laugh at simple things. We all have tough jobs that are incredibly demanding.
As professionals, we all need to find outlets on how we can de-stress, de-clutter, and disengage for a bit. Honestly, I am not that good at any of these three things, but I am making a more converted effort in 2020.
If you were wondering, my brief bubblemania trance was stopped after a meres 60 seconds as my phone rang. It was the Chicago Tribune.
“Emergency Management, this is Kevin. Can I help you?”
