An education. You know and Oh also dealing with you know how do you explain to your small child or your young child like what this means you know. What is a pandemic wire? We wearing masks. Why can't I go over to my friend's house? Why can't we play on the playground? Wise the movie theater so this is incredibly challenging for everybody and you know most people are doing pretty good at it. Well you tell you what if you're with people you love. It's a lot easier and so that's why it's nice if it's a family that really gets along that's it can be okay. How about you Robert? You doing all right. Yeah overall I had some incredibly horrible illness Late December of last year that lasted like a month and a half under. If you have it I I would love to be tested there. My own hospital has like Lsu exhibiting symptoms. Don't come anywhere near and so I'm like if I had it and I'm over it I would love to get out donate blood plasma or why. Fortunately son got back from Asia and On the twenty eighth of March he was in Bali Vietnam. He was traveling all over was living with a bunch of kids in Bali. Finally convinced him to come home bout about a week. After he got home he got sick. He had a headache. He was weak. He had muscle pains. He coughed and we couldn't get him tested. He's much better now. He's fine now. He's one hundred percent now and I told him you might be in luck. You're one of the first. You know he just graduated from college last year. We might be one of the first people in your age cohort to be able to go out and work because you've got. You might have immunity. Steve Gibson also got weirdly very. Ill wasn't able to get tested. He's recovered so people like you like you and Steve and my son You could be the golden you might have that yellow card you can carry around saying. I'm I'm cove it free. I got the immunity now.
