Hello from Day 6 of the hasty reopening of California. In the news today, California restaurants can open, but they cannot use any televisions. Why go to a bar if you can’t watch sports? To get COVID! Yaaaaaaay. But the vaccines are becoming more widely available, so PLEASE don’t listen to the antivaxx because seriously?
Yesterday I missed NONET, NOUGHT, ONTO, OUGHT, OUTGO, OUTGUN, OUTTHOUGHT, THEE, and TONNE.
OUTGONE: past tense of outgo.
TONNE: dumb spelling of ton.
