We’re heading towards our tenth month of pandemic, and for me it has been hard to maintain any semblance of human contact. For a while, there were happy hour video calls now and then, but that is such a poor imitation of the real thing that they have mostly dropped off. Like David Klion I tried an online game of Diplomacy, but I couldn’t seem to remember to submit my orders, and was the first player to get knocked out.
One thing that has kept going, however, is my Dungeons and Dragons group. We’ve been playing the same campaign for almost four years, even after I moved away from my friends in D.C.
