The "And...We're [almost] Back" Edition
Okay— I made it in under the Sunday deadline. The deadline is of course of my own making, what with calling this missive the LZ *Sunday* Paper and all.
To recap: (this is really boring Covid blah blah who cares so if you don’t actually know me/my family you might want to skip to the actual news, below)!
—step 1: bail on all planned foreign trips. step 2: Book LA. Good friends, relatives, sunshine, great food, good work, excellent immediate family vibes, historically.
—daughter gets Omicron in NYC, delays trip to LA
—mother takes 70 tests before, during, and after coming to LA (negative). Day after landing, rapid test (negative) and PCR test on same day. The next day PCR results (positive). Merry Christmas! In the city that hadn’t had rain in 10 months, it rained (poured) 8 out of 10 days in 40-degree LA.
—recovery good! other daughter gets Omicron. Happy New Year!!
—somehow (same house, kitchen, cars, bathrooms, etc, even with the best of masking and quarantining once we knew we were positive) husband and son are spared.
—except: One false positive Rapid test for husband, causing annoying recusal from Lakers game for no reason (uh except trying to save stadium crowd from being even more super-spreader-y but our do-goodery was for nought)
And so, extending trip with emergency air BnB’s, two kids in and out for brief ski jaunt, having visited every Covid testing Tent, folding table, walk-in, drive-through in Los Angeles County, we are issuing the L(ate) Z(oinks!) Sunday(night) Paper(email) right now.
I can’t tell you how much great stuff I have stored up. Everything there is to know about Politics, Pop Culture and everything in between— the essential list of the most important content about women. I have never missed week(s) in a row and it sure feels weird. Here it is — just for you.
If you subscribe, I promise — (almost) every Sunday morning The LZ Sunday Paper will show up in your inbox.
If you don’t, you can follow me for some fun and / or important things in between Sundays, mostly on (click here:) Instagram because I can barely find anything in the right place on Facebook anymore, and Twitter is a cesspool which I might be done with.
If you have a story you think I may have missed, email me at (click here:) LZSundayPaper@gmail.com.
