COVID, ramblings, my worst enemy
I've used the phrase "my worst enemy" just now. I don't actually have a worst enemy. Or even an enemy. I'm sure there's plenty of people who don't like me- but there's not many people I don't like. Political figures, perhaps.
No wait, I've realised who I hate more than anyone else- Andrew bloody Wakefield. Caused the massive distrust in vaccines and medical science that I'm sure had an impact on how people have reacted to this pandemic.
I don't take any joy in seeing an outbreak anywhere in Australia. I'd like to think not many Australians would.
Outbreaks are scary, depressing things. COVID is a terrible virus that can make you feel awful and can kill. Lockdowns can be isolating and frightening.
I wouldn't wish any of this on my worst enemy.
More thoughts on sports:
One sportsperson who I do feel for is Nick Krygios, who has been vilified despite not being that bad. A bit volatile and fond of unusual insults, perhaps, but nothing on the scale of other sports people. I highly recommend his Reputation Rehab episode: https://iview.abc.net.au/video/LE1907H001S00
