You are not gonna like me today. I promise fun tomorrow.. So I was on the phone with a pal and we discussed the possibility of a big boat show this year. And it hit us both. PERFECT! Oh, I aint going, and neither is he, and forget her, she wasnt going anyway. But we will wait.. Here is the plan. Do the show. Which attracts “the age group most at risk” As in YOU reading this. Then many of you leave your protests and go, because it’s just a political play. Go ahead.. three weeks later.. BOATS FOR SALE CHEAP! Show boats.. Flooding the market. Here is how the ad would read.
“USED TO BE RARE BUT NOW FOR SALE BY ANGRY WIDOW. BEST OFFER! Will need to be disinfected, and left in a building for a month. Otherwise good to go.”
That’s how this plays out. As someone working on Healthcare messaging 24/7 I ASURE YOU THIS IS REAL STUFF. Healthcare workers are dying in insane statistical number and getting sick. This is a very very nasty virus that even if you don’t get it, can overwhelm the health system you rely on. Yes, in some areas things are calming down, and other areas growing. Just yesterday numbers doubled in Northern VA. This is going to be a way of life for at least two years. YES.. The new normal. If you have a Dr in your club, ask them. Use this story as an excuse. I am okay with that. I do care for you, I deeply care about your small business. I do want to go to a show. I am in the same situation. Bitch all you want, yell at me, it’s understandable. BUT. This is how all horror movies start
Be creative for all our sakes. Think outside of the show. I will help. We can brainstorm together and I will support any club that tries something different. And will NOT support your show if it goes on. in fact, I will remind people NOT TO GO! And to the club that says screw you WoodyBoater, sure we will have a show. Can you advertise the boats that will be there and the angry future widows names.. Asking for a friend.
