Wednesday/ what it is to wallow

Poster for the band Wallows and their album Tell Me That It’s Over .. sure sounds like a reference to the pandemic. Dr. Fauci says it is .. kind of: the US is ‘out of the full-blown COVID-19 pandemic phase’. We still lose 300 people every day, far more than in a very bad flu season, but down from three thousand a day at the height of the pandemic.

I knew the word wallow, but when I saw the poster of the band Wallows that had been here in Seattle, I wanted to look up the word nonetheless.  Check it out below.
