“Yesterday’s news” is a phrase that was defined this way, yesterday:
something that everyone already knows about and is no longer interested in.
“People who think the environment is yesterday’s news are wrong.”
Does COVID-19 meet the criteria for yesterday’s news? Most people already know about it but interest remains high.
COVID-19 is yesterday’s news, today’s news, AND tomorrow’s news. I think we’re all looking forward to the time when COVID-19 will truly be yesterday’s news.
That time will come; we just don’t know when.
Around here, yesterday’s news included all this:
- I most likely have COVID-19, because I attended a group therapy conference in NYC where several people have tested positive,
- I’m continuing to run low-grade fevers,
- Michael is exhibiting no symptoms at all,
- Michael and I continue to self-quarantine (OF COURSE!),
- I am NOT short of breath, and
- people seem to have different opinions on whether we should get tested, at this point.
Do you see yesterday’s news in yesterday’s photos?
That rubber duck is yesterday’s news, because it first appeared in this blog post from the 2013 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, which was A LOT of yesterdays ago. I’m glad we’re all still here, not much the worse for wear.
Here‘s “Yesterday” by the Beatles, who are definitely not yesterday’s news.
Any comment you leave, below, will be news to me.
My daily gratitude may be something everyone here already knows about, but I’m hoping you’re still interested in it, here and now.
