While I stand at the window waiting for my takeout, I hear my brother-in-law (visiting from out of town) behind me. “That looks delicious,” he says to one of the people in the group who just came up.
“With all this covid shit, I can’t even ask for a bite,” he adds ruefully after she agrees that whatever she is eating is, in fact, delicious.
“I mean, this is New York,” I say over my shoulder, “so would you have even gotten a bite before covid?"
