Actually Pepper was the doctor, you're thinking of Pepper's Soda.

The fam is having a lot of fun around my unemployed status today. Telling me to get a job, referring to me as "between jobs" to friends and family (which, to be fair, is extremely accurate).

For context: my last day at my previous job was yesterday and my first day at the new job is Monday.

Fun fact:
When my elder daughter starts a sentence with "Fun Fact" it's often not a fact and almost never fun.

"There's a bench underneath and leaves and nature on top." - My daughter, who is very much old enough to know the word "gazebo" after having lived immediately next to one for 6 years (more than half her life)

My wife put candy in 150 plastic eggs, and we hid them. Now, remember, we only have two children. One might think this would lead to a less competitive, cut-throat egg hunt.

To be clear I'm saying the number from March 17, 2021 is lower than any point in between March 28th, 2020 up to that point. I don't shift my point of comparison by 14 days.

It is worth noting that in March of 2020 our numbers collection was very questionable. Nonetheless, I'm happy to see this number continuing to go down consistently, as it has been since January 26th.

There's one particular number I watch to get a feeling for what the COVID risk levels are like. It's the same number I've been tracking for at least several months, partially for consistency's sake. It is the 7-day moving average of covid deaths per day in my state, on a 14-day delay, rounded to one decimal place (which is fair, a whole number divided by 7 only has 1 sigfig).

That number is now 16, the lowest it has been since March 28th, 2020.

"How was your day?"
"Oh y'know, just went to Target and spent like $40 to buy... uh.. air..."
"Jesus, why is air so expensive?"
"Inflation."
