THIS is the right answer!
right now no, I don’t feel comfortable.
Wow !!! Second time in my life.
LOL Now I have to know what the first was...
Will there be food and beer?
I've been to a wedding and a funeral. I never felt at risk, and neither did anyone there - or I/they wouldn't be there. Pretty good rule to live by.
Skip the wedding, tell them you’ll be there for the divorce.
I don’t do weddings, they mean nothing to me, regardless, it’s not cool considering the present situation
August is a long way away.
Outdoors with social distancing in place.
I don't live my life in a perpetual state of fear. No matter what my government says, Lowe's, a drilling rig or Wal-Mart are not a magical magical COVID free places.. A wedding would be the least of my worries.
If it was a one day or less drive, if I didn't have to fly, if it were held outdoors, including the reception, and if whoever is planning the wedding is really dedicated to making it as safe as possible, then MAYBE.
But my immediate instinct is anyone who's determined to go ahead with a wedding this August is probably NOT gonna be as cautious about all that stuff as I'd want, so my first reaction is no way. It's really hard to envision a wedding, with any sort of dancing and a large common food thing (even if it's just buffet snacks) that can be done as safely as I'd want it to be. And while I've seen a LOT of weddings with outdoor ceremonies, I don't think I've ever seen an outdoor reception. I guess I've been at a couple in tents. But unless it was my own daughter (one of whom just got married last October), it'd be tough to say yes, and my own daughter wouldn't go through with it this summer and I'd try like hell to talk her out of it if she was inclined to. You just can't ask friends and family to come from all over in this situation...
Respectfully decline, stay home play guitar
Found out more about the blessed event: at a winery 3 hours round trip on a friday in a place where august means 100 degree weather.
I hate hot weather, don't drink and sitting in traffic makes me cranky.
I'll send them an nice gift and a card instead. Or spend the money on a pedal.
I seriously doubt they will miss me.
GAS is certainly better than getting a Virus
One of the family members has said this whole virus thing is way over blown. That raised my eyebrow and I just said wow. Some people just don't get it.
I don think so . I have previously committed to playing guitar that day
There have been so many stories and interviews of people’s before and after where before they inevitably get infected, they’re all: “this whole virus thing is way over blown” and the after they’ve spent a week in ICU on a ventilator, they don’t so much think it’s overblown and only hope their spouse, who’s still in ICU will survive.
One one hand I want to be sympathetic because they’ve narrowly survived and on the other hand, I want to slap them for being so stupid. All you have to do to gauge the seriousness is look at how it has devastated every country except one or two, like Taiwan and South Korea where they realized the threat and got way in front of it.
Although South Korea has been doing a great job, just yesterday they closed their schools back down after only opening for a week due to 70+ reported infections. They had 2 months of zero new infections prior to opening.
I'd rather do a funeral than a wedding. At least I don't have to pretend that I think the principal will stay dead.
Me? No, given the circumstances.
I've only been invited to one wedding. I drank too much and made a complete fool of myself. Gak. I need Rick Sanchez to do a memory snip on me.
