Monday/ fist bump – no handshake, nor high-five

In doubles tennis, it has become standard practice for the partners to high-five and low-five between points, all done to promote team spirit.

Well, with the coronavirus going around here in Washington State*, we decided at our regular social tennis on Sunday, that we will go with fist bumps instead.

*The count is 14 cases so far, of which 6 had turned fatal. The local Costco store was swamped this weekend with shoppers, stocking up on basic food supplies and other necessities. (People! Keep calm and carry on).

P.S. Super Tuesday is here. Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar and Tom Steyer had all suspended their campaigns by Monday night. Joe Biden emerged out of the South Carolina primary on Saturday as the main challenger to Bernie Sanders. Mike Bloomberg is the ‘X’ factor, and is looking to draw enough votes on Tuesday to prove him a viable candidate in the race.
