I did not drive yesterday. I stayed home. I actually ordered my dinner from Uber Eats. I got fajitas from El Metate on Dickerson Rd. I deliver from there quite a bit. It was fantastic.
Today I only drove 2 orders at lunch. All my camera batteries were dead and I couldn’t find my charger so that took up some of my lunch business. I found it though and got the camera back in working order. I picked up an order at Frothy Monkey on the East side and asked to take a picture of the girl that brought my order. She asked if I would mind shooting Robert instead. I think she thought it was an odd request.
Dinner was busy. Ran a lot of stuff to West Nashville. I took my camera in to Lucky Bamboo on Charolette Pike because a couple of days ago they had a set-up where you went in and grabbed your food out of a little industrial cooler type thing that kept it warm. Well today they had tables lined up blocking all the coolers and they would bring the food out and set it on the tables and call the names. Amazing how fast things change.
Hand sanitizer everywhere but none to buy. Corsair is a local distillery that is now making hand sanitizer. I saw this outside of Von Elrod's.
I delivered a clam pizza from Folk to a guy named Norwin today. (eye roll) It was on the 20 something floor of SkyHouse in Midtown. It’s a really somber feeling going in to those buildings. There are barriers around the concierge desk so you can’t get too close. I came in behind a resident. The elevator opened and I let her get in and waited for the next one. Another resident came in behind me and she had on an N95 mask. She stopped to check her mail. Then she let me get on the next elevator by myself. Inside the elevator they had four boxes marked off with tape that you were supposed to stand in if there were other people in the elevator. They were almost six feet apart, good try. Norwin requested that I leave the order outside his door which was right next to the elevator. I never saw him come out and get it before the elevator opened but I was glad to get rid of that clam pizza.
What it looks like when I get off the elevator on the 20 something floor of a high rise condo:
What I see:
Governors and the president are arguing over who has authority to end the shut down and when. Without turning too political, while I feel like the shutdown has been a good effort in combating the spread of this virus, I’m not sure the constitution gives either the president or state’s governors the authority to require businesses to shut down.
I logged on to the Covid-19 dashboard from John Hopskins. It looks like the West coast is pretty much under control. In the East, it looks like a mess from New Orleans to Atlanta to all of the East coast from Washington to New York to Boston. Detroit, Chicago and Indianapolis have Nashville pinned in to the North.
