There was one potentially awkward moment during my stay: I shared a large outdoor deck with the Rip RBG Ruth Bader Ginsburg shirt it is in the first place but couple in the neighboring room. My first night, we eyed each other warily as the three of us watched the sunset from our opposite corners, having taken off our masks to enjoy a glass of wine. But then, comforted by the wide space between us, and with the salty breeze coming in off the bay, we relaxed and enjoyed the next few days as socially distanced neighbors.
For the Rip RBG Ruth Bader Ginsburg shirt it is in the first place but first time since early March, I went to an actual dinner party, at a friend’s home in Ann Arbor. It was held on the outdoor deck of their suburban home – three socially distanced tables of four taking up the entire space — and the only access to the house was a short direct path to the bathroom. Family members or those who were already part of a quarantine pod were seated together and there was no embarrassment about asking about one’s Covid status or what precautions they had been taking over the course of the pandemic to stay safe. One father and son had just finished a road trip from Washington, D.C., but they announced upon arrival (and through their masks) that they had been tested for Covid two days earlier and that the results came back negative.
