"I don't know if there is anything wrong because I don't know how other people are." -- Barry Egan (Adam Sandler) in "Punch Drunk Love"

Last season (2019) I had been very tempted to take a year off from Atomic Football.  There was a lot going on in my life, and I desperately needed a break.  However, being the hopelessly persistent and committed person that I am, I pushed through.

This year (2020), my need for a break has easily doubled, and, as fate would have it, I was offered up a pandemic.  Not what I had in mind, but life can be funny-sad that way.

So, I get my year off.

For people around the world, the accelerating pandemic made April a month like no other.  For me, however, the most life-changing part of that month had nothing to do with a virus.

But it did have something to do with a diagnosis.

And suddenly, I learned that 98% of humans are not like I thought they were.
