Jed’s headed back to California. I haz a sad. We’ll both be fully vaccinated by end of May, I think, so maybe I can go out for a visit sometime in May or June. We’ll see how COVID behaves, and if it seems reasonably responsible to get on a plane at that point.
Before he left, Jed taught me a new board game, Root. It features adorable woodland critters viciously battling for dominance. It’s pretty cool, esp. because it’s a completely asymmetrical game — all four species have different game play and different goals for their win conditions. There’s an iOS version, but it’s really quite a complicated game to learn, so I’m glad I played the board game version first.
