Q: Suspicious minds. ,,crazy..,, .....

colleague (female) goes out of her way to inform me of a recently instituted school progam/benefit.  Walks me through it to sign-up and complete first order.  WTF?  My suspicious mind makes me ask ...... Why?   Is she into me? directed by our supervisor to do so? looking to show how smart she is to know about the school programs? truly good-hearted & kind? WTF?  I mean we know each other a little bit,,,, but very little really, and she is married.  Didn't seem happy marriage to me, but whatever.   Why would she go out of her way to do this thing for me?    ***Important to note that I was unaware of the program, and had asked No one for assistance regarding.  

 

It's a simple, unimportant thing,, just to get a meal from school canteen,,,, but she offers to sign me up, place order,, collect, and deliver to my apt.  WTF?

Coronavirus: ‘Eerie’ silence in Ireland on St Patrick’s Day as country celebrates behind closed doors

It’s normally a day for music, drinking and laughter, but Ireland was eerily quiet on St Patrick’s Day as people celebrated their patron saint in isolation.

Ireland was eerily quiet on Tuesday as the country celebrated a “strange” and unprecedented St Patrick’s Day behind closed doors.

Families danced in their kitchens, decorated their windows and sang songs from their gardens, but all parades, pub parties and public events were cancelled after the government banned mass gatherings and ordered bars and restaurants to shutter on Sunday.

The tough new social distancing measures were introduced as 53 new cases of the virus were confirmed across the country on Monday – its biggest rise since the crisis began.

It brings Ireland’s total number of cases to 223, though the government has warned that figure could reach 15,000 by the end of the month.

"This pandemic cannot be wished away. It's going to have a massive impact,” Irish Minister for Health Simon Harris said on Monday.

"The number of cases is going to rise and rise and rise over the coming days and weeks."

People were determined not to let the crisis spoil their fun though. Many families still dressed up and held their own private parades in their backyards, while others shared videos online of themselves dancing in their kitchens.

In Greystones, a coastal town south of Dublin, a note was passed around one neighbourhood encouraging residents to celebrate from the safety of their driveways.

“Everyone decorate their house, put St Patrick’s Day art in the windows,” the note said.

“On Tuesday, everyone get dressed up as usual and at 12 noon, we all come out into our driveways and sing songs, wave flags and play instruments for 15 minutes or so.

“These are unprecedented times we are living through,” the note added.
