I was watching a TV show the other day and there was a woman, the main character. She was in an arcade trying to get this specific toy for her child.
She thought her daughter would really like this specific pink plushie toy, so the scene is her trying to get this toy. And the camera pans to her peering into the glass looking all excited, concentrating, and then shows her hand touching the handle or the joystick or whatever — the stick you use to move the machine around.
And my immediate thought was “oh she shouldn’t touch that, it hasn’t been disinfected” and I realized that and I paused and it just struck me how this pandemic is affecting how I view people’s actions in TV shows, like how crazy is it that my first thought is, “Wow this character, who doesn’t exist, who lived in the world before this pandemic ever happened, should be focused on disinfecting this handle before she plays this game.”
So just a strange thing that happened.
