It was on that historic day, November 2nd 2020, that gym owners, for the first time in months, didn't get up early. They didn’t walk into the kitchen half-asleep to make some coffee that morning, they didn’t grab the keys to the gym on their way out. But most importantly, they didn't drive to their respective gym to open up, as they were used to for the past few months.
And so every gym all over the country remained closed that morning, as the evil She-Devil gains goblin intended.
“It is only a temporary measure to ensure the numbers go down”, they said, “the lockdown will be over by the end of the month”, they said. “We’re doing this now, so you can spend Christmas with your family, without having to worry about social distancing”.
And yet, in spite of what was said, just a week before the end of the so-called “light lockdown”, it was extended until December 20. And then January 10. And again, January 31.
As of today, the lockdown has been extended 8 times and gyms have remained closed ever since that dreadful day in November. There is a small minority of reasonable states, who eventually realised the absurdity of our situation and opened the gyms back up, but the federal government is going to screw them too.
There’s talk about picking a few cities and allowing one or two stores, gyms etc. to open, so as to see how ending the lockdown can be approached and how that affects the overall number of infections, but funnily enough they don’t want to test that before the numbers go down significantly, which obviously won’t happen anytime soon.
If anything, I’m looking forward to the election and having a new federal Chancellor, perhaps then this madness will finally end, but one can only hope.
Here’s to another 6 months of wasting away in atrophy.
Happy 6 month anniversary Germanbros.
